L’écologie et la pratique d’installation paysagère dans l’espace social

Interventions in the public or social space always involve some negotiation and dialogue, sometimes taking into consideration the space of the inhabitant… another way of contributing to shaping the landscape, to question places… but also to look at ways we manage the spaces in our life with a critical eye…

After following agricultural studies in the middle of the 70s, Gilles Bruni experiments painting before starting again studies at the University of Rennes 2 in 1986. He obtains a doctorate of Visual arts in 1997. In parallel he abandons its personal practice for a common field of experimentation with Marc Babarit, in the open air, under name “Landscape Installation”. Gilles Bruni with or without Marc Babarit conducted its field activities in France like abroad (Germany, the USA, Canada, Denmark, Italy, Austria, Venezuela), mainly for residences and orders.

Apart from this singular collaboration, Gilles Bruni continues this contextual work, crossing its questionnement around the landscape with that of the ecology of the place, his inhabitants and their history, privileging collaborations and partnerships. In its creations he tries to integrate publications into its practice of the site and photography.
