Quelque chose plutôt que rien ("Something rather than nothing"), 22 black and white and colors photographs, silver and chromogenic prints, 2015.
There has long been questioned "why is there something rather than nothing?"since we were surprised that the world could exist. Some wondered what God could be doing before he created the world; he was perhaps lazy. God exists since all times and one day of this long eternity he decides to form the universe and Earth. We therefore ask ourselves: but what did he do the day before? and the day before that? No one has written the preceding pages of Genesis.
In March 2014 and March 2015, in the forest of Belval, Julien Richaudaud and I had to do something rather than nothing.
