MOUVEMENT DE MASSE

Mass movements are frequent phenomena on slopes, which occur either slowly or rapidly and which affect the whole of the slope or only particular sections. While the behaviour of water in the surface formations is undoubtedly the driving force, depending on the climatic conditions and the geomorphological site, many other factors, and their interrelationships, come into play and mean that the phenomenon can take complex and varied forms.

Gaëlle Leenhardt, DRY POND number 5: concrete, pigments, 6m diameter, 50cm high, 2021

MASS MOUVEMENT
take the current
like the mist
It can’t resist

DECOMPOSITION
does not mean DEPRESSION
take into action
the disintegration

Mass movement
take the current
like the mist
flows to the east
and eat the LAND
without HAND
the north, too short
it doesn’t worth
the south, too youth
I have my doubt

OUT
Mass movement
take the current
like the mist
It can’t resist
far east
east
far north
north
far south
south
far west
west
this isn’t a quest
just the flow
from right to left

MASS MOUVEMENT
take the current
like the mist
enters the sea
no entrance
just the trance

MOVEMENT from above
fall fall FALL
down the hall
become
the HOLE
earth cracking
and crows flying

SEDIMENTATION
without reACTION
SOLIFLUCTION
get into ACTION

MASS MOUVEMENT
take the current
like the mist
It can’t resist
OLD land
NEW land
no END
can’t stand
DESERT is drying
WATER not falling
doesn’t mean dying
but just not diving

MASS MOUVEMENT
TAKE THE CURRENT
like the mist
it can’t resist
to the west
the quest request
no rest
the earth falling
but nothing
TOO much water
the ground too round
to the DRY POND

MASS MOUVEMENT
TAKE THE CURRENT
LIKE THE MIST
IT CAN’T RESIST
