Elsa Stubbé’s project ‘The aliens have eaten my garden’ (2016 – 2018) – “a personal and poetic study of the imaginary and narrative around nature and the link that man has with the latter two in Western culture. How has nature influenced our stories, and therefore our imagination, and how these also influence our natural landscapes.

I try here to create new stories combining images from my many wanderings in nature reserves or in places where the landscape has been landscaped to reconstitute natural spaces and archival images from popular scientific works dating from the 19th century, great period of Romanticism, or the 50s, beginning of science fiction, the two great vectors of imaginary in which we are, in my opinion, confined.”
