Fire has followed Ecotopia since its birth and it is thanks to it that the artists have created the charcoal ink that is deposited on each of their canvases. By calcination, they transform the organic matter collected along their natural journeys into a black smoke. Fire itself is a process of expression of nature, a rite of transformation of matter into something else. This fire, mixed with water, has come to take the imprint of the soul of the mountains and the seas many times over. In this third moment of the Ecotopia project, it is the imprint of this transformation that is addressed, so that we can find ourselves face to face with the magic that this magic conjures up. One night in the winter of 2020, on a walk in the heart of nature, a group of friends collecting fallen wood, creates a campfire on the edge of the forest. They light it under the first super-moon of the year, which hour after hour overhangs it more and more. These woods that were once born of this nature are now entangled, concentrated in a circumscribed hearth of small stones waiting for the flame of a lighter, to illuminate one last time the forest of their birth, transmuting their energy into light and heat, before becoming again fertile food for it. During combustion, dances, songs and performances are performed near the fire. If the ritual is an idea that may come to mind, when we walk down the steps of Ecotopia, the moment of fire expresses it much more. Nothing else but this fire is enough to create the ritual. To soften the fire, at the cost of a few burns on the linen. It is nature and not man that induces the sacred. We are at most the witnesses who, during the experience of this transformation, came to collect on a linen canvas the imprint, the echo of what nature pronounced that evening with them.
