ATLANTIDE

in progress


EN | FR

This project draws on the political and philosophical aspects of the myth of Atlantis to construct a fictional narrative, albeit anchored in reality, about a contemporary Atlantis: a civilization threatened by rising sea levels linked to global warming, resulting from the frenzy of human activity. It puts in images and tries to make tangible the reality of the threat, which is still little visible and weighs on the submersible territories, to evoke "what is going to happen": like the landscapes doomed to disappear; an acceleration of the present made sensitive by the erasure and the burial; a suggestion of the unimaginable catastrophe and of a possible future reality.
