Come and draw the Banyan Tree with Cedric Bregnard.
This participatory art will take place at Centre d’Art Citadines, Auroville with the presence of the artist.
It is to meet a tree that Cedric Bregnard returned to Auroville.
10 years after his first stay, the Swiss artist has an appointment with the monumental banyan tree that reigns in the gardens of the Matrimandir.
For years Cedric has been immortalizing trees around the world, ancestral specimens of different species, of these sacred beings that border on immortality.
What started as an individual photographic project has evolved over time and circumstances into a collective performance. With Cedric’s guidance, the public is invited to give back contrast to a monumental photograph of the Banyan by intervening with black ink on the half-tone image. The artist becomes the initiator of an almost alchemical link with the matter.
