The video installation which Collectif Trouble displays during the ecological week is a sensorial and multiperspective interpretation of a watershed of the Balaton region. After exploring the territory in April 2023, during Balatorium AiR II research, questioning the notion of invasiveness while stepping aside the modern binary distinctions between endemic & invasive species - Collectif Trouble opened its comprehension of invasiveness not only to plants or animals but also to human activities. Indeed, from the crest to the shore, those activities are fragmenting the landscape and circulations, heavily modifying the biodiversity and its dynamics. So called invasive species are known to affect localised ecosystems in similar ways, this being the reason why they usually enter this category. Concepts such as borders and limits, private properties and surveillance, artificialisation of shores and hybridity, globalization, mass tourism & extraction entered our research and became protagonists of our non-linear narration.

Members of the Collectif played with the landscape, bringing a versatile presence that oscillates between discreet and potentially harmful behaviours, expressing the ambiguity of the notion of invasiveness. These blurry wanderings through the landscape and the collected images and woven materials is a way to explore new ways of living on a damaged planet.
