Ceps – The rooting of time

Calon Segur, Vine stocks, Haut-Médoc
Wet plate collodion – Ferrotypes
2018 -2020

Aged vine stocks show the indelible marks of time on the landscape. In the face of nature’s forces, they remain still and impassive, yet their contortions reveal the effort of each stock to find its unique and singular shape. They are like calligraphic brushstrokes on the land, traversing time to finally become what they are, while offering the harvest of their noble fruit.

With their wooden and muscular organic veins being twisted and roughed, confronted by all seasons, year in, year out, they have no concept of time. They shelter the soul of a fragile organism that does not want to become what our Zeitgeist or spirit of time, imposes on us: being interchangeable, aseptic, uprooted. “Ceps” have silently defined their place and the place has defined them.

The collodion technique is an early photographic process dating back to 1851. Collodion requires an extensive darkroom preparation, as each metal plate is immersed in a solution of silver nitrate to form silver iodide. This complex process includes coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing with filigrane attention. As a result each plate is a one-of-a-kind positive, with unique image clarity and details.

Ceps – L’enracinement du temps

Calon Segur, Haut-Médoc
Collodion humide – ferrotype
2018 -2020

Les ceps de vigne dévoilent la face visible du temps,
travaillant de façon indélébile dans la texture naturelle du lieu.
Face aux forces de la nature, ils restent immobiles, impassibles. Pourtant leurs contorsions révèlent l’effort pour trouver leur forme unique et singulière. Comme des coups de pinceau de la calligraphie du temps dans le paysage naturel, ils ont traversé les années pour devenir ce qu’ils sont et offrir la récolte de leurs nobles fruits.

.
Avec leur bois et leurs veines organiques entrelacés et
rugueux, confrontés à toutes les saisons, années après années,
la question du temps qui taraude tant les humains semble leur demeurer inconnue. Ils créent l’abri pour protéger l’âme
d’un organisme fragile qui ne veut pas devenir ce que le Zeitgeist (l’esprit du temps) nous impose: l’interchangeabilité, l’aseptisation, le déracinement.

Les ceps ont défini silencieusement leur place et leur place, les a définis.
Jörg Bräuer.
