This copy contains an archival print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, signed by Alice Pallot.

On the announcement of the deconfinement, Alice Pallot and her friends dreamt of a space of freedom, of an exploration. She spontaneously did a Google search for «sahara belgium», discovering the unexpected existence of the Lommelse Sahara, in the province of Limburg. Impromptu, they thus left in quest of a wild land.

In the twentieth century, the emissions from the former zinc factory made vegetation completely disappear across several hundred hectares in Lommel, giving way to an arid landscape covered by white sand. In order to avoid the extension of the sandy plains, a new forest of conifers was planted, creating a unique nature reserve. The pines were able to survive through symbiotic coexistence with a fungi, the Sullius Bovinus. Naturally resistant to zinc, it has protected the trees and other reemerging vegetation from ecotoxicity.

Second edition of Suillus, reprinted in 25 numbered and handbound copies, with a cover sleeve silkscreen printen by Juliet Merie, and a text written by Constance Nguyen. 10 of the 25 copies come with a signed print. This reprint is published following the .tiff exhibition, at Fotomuseum Antwerp in June 2022.
