Since 1980, Erik Samakh’s work has taken inspiration from a constant dialogue with nature. Whether he uses the patiently recorded song of frogs or the rustling of insects, and whether he captures solar energy to make flutes sing or to light up fireflies, Erik Samakh orchestrates natural elements in delicate, poetic installations that make invisible use of new technology. Created in situ, his work is often in nature reserves or parks (such as Tijuca Forest in Brazil, the Vassivière international centre, the Chaumont-sur-Loire regional estate, etc.). Erik Samakh was born in 1959 in Saint-Georges-de-Didonne, and he lives and works in Serres in the Hautes-Alpes area.
In 2005, Erik Samakh created Les joueurs de flûte [The flute players], a work installed in Saint-Benoît Park in Digne-les-Bains.
