The first stone

Frames 53 x 53 x 4 cm, mirror bottom, silver, bronze or grey, windows, photographic printing.

Our history is marked by bursts of violence, those moments when, often out of nationalism, hatred of a people, his resentment, are directed against another people.

People hunted down, broken. It is a question of eliminating, of denying a people, but also to erase his traces by taking his land, his house, by scattering his tiniest memories. No more home to feel safe; neighbours with whom gifts were exchanged at the holidays become judges, informers and murderers.

A gesture symbolizes this moment of change, the one when the first stone is thrown.
