“Confinement Gardening” Thomas VON ARX [SWITZERLAND]
During the “shut down” in France (le confinement) I was staying at the place “Cugat” of the artistic photographer Elizabeth Herman. Between mid March and mid May 2020 I was working in the garden situated on the Dordogne River near Sainte Foy la Grande.
In the forest I was constructing my “jardin du confinement”, a combination between a large flat hole and a wooden construction made with recicled material.
August 22 I was visiting the place with two friends. The Italofrench photographer Simone Cinelli was shooting a serie of photos; I was frendly permitted to use them for a short “Shut Down” video.
