« The earth has music for those who listen » 

Quote assigned to William Shakespeare 


Winner of the 2017 Bullukian Prize, Guillaume Barth present for the first time in the garden of the Bullukian Foundation his immersive installation Concert for a New Forest.

For more than 3 years, the artist transcribed the datas observed alongside the 130 oaks, shown at the exhibition. As a result the composition of surprising musicals scores that will resonate for a unique concert time, interpreted by the virtuoso pianist Neus Estarellas. 


Guided by the finical observations of the Nature, fed by the philosophical readings and carried by the ancestral knowledges, the artist reborn forgotten worlds, revealing to us new sounds and visuals horizons. 


By this so special attention to the seasons cycles and to the language of Nature, but also for his understanding of the forces and energies in movement, Guillaume Barth remind us that the vegetal world is more than ever essential to our future.
