Les yeux de la Sueille, 2020

Intervention in the public space.
Mirrors inlaid in rocks, large stones, trunks of dead trees, dry stone walls
In collaboration with the association Sur le sentier des lauzes. Hameau de La Coste / Saint-Mélany, Ardèche, France

“New work of the Sentier des lauzes, Les yeux de la Sueille are a little more than 200 small round mirrors placed by inlaying in rocks, large stones, trunks of dead trees, dry stone walls, near the river. Placed in constellations or in an isolated way, they are as many eyes which look at us, human beings. The walker who follows the Sentier des lauzes will never discover all of them. The little dots can be very close to him, integrated into the elements that compose and frame the path, but they can also appear in the distance, at times sending back bright flashes when the sun's rays reflect on them. At the point where the path crosses the Sueille River, these small dots appear in greater numbers, creating here and there concentrated and scintillating sets and reproducing a fragmented mosaic of the landscape that faces them. They "point" in a discreet way to the natural or man-made forms that make up this place from which emanates a singular aura, whose magic is reinforced by the artist's intervention. They bring together the sky and the earth and, by capturing our reflection, reveal us to be an integral part of nature”.
Presentation of the work by the association of the Sentier des lauzes

“A collaborative artistic project
The eyes of the Sueille are the result of a long immersion of more than two years of Jan Kopp in the landscapes of the Drobie Valley. At the beginning of this long-term residency, Jan Kopp created an installation at the Musée des Vans based on the objects kept in reserve, and rich in the stories they convey (exhibition "Geologies" in 2019). The work will be integrated into the museum's permanent collection in 2020, and after numerous exchanges with the active members of the association, he designed Les yeux de la Sueille. The installation on site was done in the same way: in a close and enthusiastic collaboration. Thus, the creative process evolved continuously, generating desires over time. As an integral part of the work, dry stone elements were made and assembled on site during a week-long bivouac with the association ELIPS, Écoles Locale Itinérante de la Pierre Sèche. Designed for the use of walkers, they echo the magnificent examples of built heritage located near the ford: levade, mill and béalière.”
