There are the children’s cabane*, made of chairs and sheets. The neighbour’s cabane, in the trees. There are the unusual ones that you rent to feel on vacation. Those where you get naked, at the beach. And then those in the gardens, which punctuate the aligned plots. The ones we see in the forest and the ones we look for in the mountains. Those where fishermen and hunters are always absent, and those too present on the edge of cities. Those seasonal ones we don’t talk about and those temporary ones, standing in a fallen landscape. And then those made of words, which protect a thought. There are those we allow and those we ignore. Those we abandon, those we move and those we destroy. A cabane, is to live in, to occupy but differently. It’s taking a place, positioning oneself. Being outside but inside. It’s filling, having, and therefore belonging. The cabane is a game, a refusal and a refuge. It does not belong to any place, but is built from what surrounds it. The cabane takes shape thanks to its occupants.
Our cabane has no wall but a roof, our cabane is transparent, our cabane is an interstice, our cabane is a binder, our cabane is safe, our cabane is solid, our cabane is shaky, our cabane is built, our cabane is hybrid, our cabane is determined, our cabane is a gesture, our cabane is an exchange, our cabane is an answer, our cabane is a question, our cabane is polyglot, our cabane is cosmopolitan, our cabane is local, our cabane is private, our cabane is public, our cabane is filled, our cabane is empty, our cabane accuses, our cabane celebrate, our cabane is a meeting, our cabane lives the possibilities.
