and everything becomes nothing again 2014
On the border between Estonia and Latvia, researchers have installed a webcam that observes an osprey nest 24 hours a day. Léa Habourdin follows this nest and its protagonists from the time the birds hatch until the departure of the two young. The result of this adventure is a corpus of 515 screen photographs tracing four months of the life of these birds. These birds of prey, with their dramatic plumage and the piercing eye of the hunter, play out their personal drama in the arena of their nest, through light and darkness, sun and rain, in movement and immobility.
Born in 1985 in the north of France, Léa Habourdin studied printmaking at the Estienne school and photography at the ENSP in Arles. Exploring fields such as animal behaviour, ethology and research in applied sciences, she develops a work in drawing and photography in which she builds a new image of what we call ‘the wild’. An artist’s book was published by Mille Cailloux, in 2016, under the title and everything becomes nothing again.
