Mushroom Hunting in the Woods | 02.15 mins | 2022 | HD

A short film which depicts the artist spotting fungi from a hunting tower, deep in the Forêt de la Double, Périgord Blanc region, south west France. The resulting spore prints, which burst on the screen, are made from foraged parasol mushrooms. This performative film is accompanied by an archive audio field recording: Women Gathering Mushrooms, from Bayaka: The Extraordinary Music of the Babenzélé Pygmies, recorded by Louis Sarno in the Congo Basin of Central Africa.
