In 1934, the ethnologist Claude Seignolle visited Saclay plateau, South of Paris. He observed mysterious witchcraft practices among shepherds and farmers of the plateau. For him, these cast spells did not do not testify to a survival of ancient times, but were a reaction to the urbanization that was already emerging.

The installation Haunted edges reveals a place populated by the mysterious remains of his
past. Dried tansy - witch plant - prints its fragrant presence, while voices evoke the marginalized and forgotten forms of life that have unfolded on the plateau during ages. What if these ancient inhabitants, in their relationship to wild plants and the marshes which once covered the plateau, allowed us to feel differently the transformations today at work in this territory?
