The apple trees, on the other hand, are a calmer cultivation

Investigation by Alexis Cicciù
Summary

In late 2018, Alexis Cicciù arrived at KYTA, in northern India, invited there for an artistic residency. At 2 600 meters in altitude, in the middle of monsoon season, he immersed himself little by little in a new world dominated by insects –one of the artist’s passions—and charas, the local cannabis that sets the pace for the community’s rituals and daily life. A rite of passage told directly from the field.
