On the horizon

The artists wanted to create something the viewer had to participate in and that spoke directly to the settling of Bolougne-ser-Mer. Known as a major fishing port, the city's past and future are intertwined with the sea.

The images we chose embody a concept of time. A fisherman throws their net into a desolate dried-out landscape becomes a vision of a not-so-distant future. On the second wall, the sun beams over a shoal of fish showing the relatively stable period the earth's ecosystems have had. The viewer finds themselves on the road caught between these two possibilities and a horizon line connecting these two paths. By combining the walls with thier eyes, one can glimpse a way forward in our current ecological crisis that is potentially harmonious with our surroundings.
