 La Voie Basse. Birth Trail. 

This was produced in conjunction with the Ailyos Art project in Leysin 2018,  

The' Birth Trail' takes the viewer into the depth of a forest where they can locate a Conception Pool.  Here people are invited to float a seed in the water to denote the start of life. A metaphor for conception. After this a trail is followed by walking along stepping stones each with a fertility symbol painted onto the stone with lime wash. A log is placed for walking along and then more stepping stones before arriving at the Vulva. This is constructed from wood, plaited hessian rope and decorated with items naturally found in the forest.  Here one can peer through the aperture and view high in the trees the symbol for the beginning of life. A sun suspended with the light shining through.
