Cotignac is a small commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region in southeastern France. For us, Cotignac is a strange land with wild landscapes. We spent our time wandering through forest, churches and castles and listening to whistle from the valley. We were surrounded by the renowned Provencal vivid colour of trees, flowers and cloudless sky. It was too beautiful and overwhelming that we could not forget and believe. The air, time and land of Cotignac were haunting but fragile.
In the show, "holiday mood”will be a starting point of Szelit’s work when Elva will focus on the colour-tone of Cotignac.
