During his workshop in Boisbuchet, French artist Mathias Kiss decided to take on a personal project to leave something in the Domaine: Covering the island on the lake with gold-leaf, a technique he uses regularly in his work.

Mathias was amazed by the lake, and particularly by the contrast between the surrounding objects: the Pyramid from Bavarian architects Brückner & Brückner, the "hairy tree" installation from last year's workshop with Charlie le Mindu, the floating house from Noe Duchaufour-Lawrance's workshop and the floating island in the lake. This is why he decided to highlight the latter with the use of gold-leaf.
