This is a Mercy is a reinterpretation of a true story dating back to 1969 during the Golden Globe Challenge. This solo non-stop sailing race with no assistance saw only one of the 9 contestants end up safe and sound, the others having either given up, or cheated or decided not to come back.
This story has been re-conveyed through a long work made of shapes and paper volumes, printed with marine photographs, elaborating a grammar of feelings. The peaks, the squares, the cones refer to these navigators sensations and feelings and give birth to nine dramatizations, metaphors of chosen moments of this race, captured and photographed.
It is an evocation and a reinterpretation of a reality where the absurd and the madness were triggers and find their implementation in theses scenographies.
is dedicated to this project.
