Restless earth - La mer retrouvée

Restless earth - La mer retrouvée, 2004

'High over the planes of Italy, where nowadays flocks of birds fly, once large schools of fish swam'. Leonardo da Vinci

Looking for resemblances between the two areas, the surroundings of Montségur and the Dordtse Biesbosch, I came across an image of the mountain Ararat, the place where, after the deluge, Noah's ark is believed to have come to rest.
The idea of mountains rising from the ocean as a result of the collision of continents inspired this work.
Black and white photographs of the sea printed on clay slabs in a hole dug in the mountains of Montségur.
