Photographs of the deceased are immersed in tanks full of water. The images dissolve, going through a succession of states showing ephemeral, fragile beauty.
The tanks are backlit and the light is projected onto the walls and ceiling.
Drops fall into the tanks, making low noises that sound like voices and mingle with the words of the deceased. The voices of the drops, together forming a murmur, is accompanied by a subtle and tender musical composition. The result is an ensemble which orchestrates images and sound in an installation. The atmosphere that is established in the room raises questions. After the dissolution of bodies, does something like the soul still remain, a moment of oating and pulsation?
Is it possible that an intermediary world, a world of transition may exist?
This project is not about mourning, but about memory.
A preliminary version of the work is being exhibited in Panorama 22 – Les Sentinelles; Écho de quelques gouttes d'éternité.
