ENGLISH Soil Affinities, although a project unto itself, started with the desire by Uriel Orlow to share the research that accompanied and structured his project with the public, hence the eponymous title, developed from Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers between April 2017 and December 2018. The book is structured around a gathering of black and white images and of a notebook which regroups the body of texts. These two groups induce a dialogue for free circulation between the narratives proposed by the authors, functioning in resonance with the image of the story simultaneously local (Aubervilliers and certain agricultural zones of Mali and Senegal) and global (the story of these localities in the light of colonial and post-colonial history and the geopolitical and economic movements throughout the world that they implied) that this plant history reveals in the book and in the artistic project called Soil Affinities.

With texts by Abdoulaye Barry, Alexandra Baudelot, Bernadette Lizet, Jean-Michel Roy, Bouba Touré, Françoise Vergès, Serge Volper, Anne-Elizabeth Wolf.
