« The song of the tracks»
From 26th February to au 19th April 2015
[...] At altitude, sounds gain presence… the movement of grass, the tip-tapping of rain. At times they are smothered by mist. Snow cracking underfoot gives the day a possibility of rupture. The rock sleeps, so make sure you don’t wake it as you pass. No noise, no shouting. [...]
A walk lasts a certain period of time and I photograph an instant of this walk. By framing rocks from a position close to the ground I remind each person of the experiences they have had in these landscapes. While walking, we are always telling ourselves a story, whether we’re in the mountains, on beaches or in woods.
The audio transcript will allow you to discover these images through the voice of an actress reading a text that I wrote. Her feelings, her digressions, her anxiety at the idea of this path, and the parallels which she draws are brought to you through an audio headset.
