Mer morte (dead sea)
In counterpoint to the film Between fantasy and denial, a long table, covered with drawings. Boards, tables, an atlas. We glance through the work at leisure, letting wander our «desire to know», surveying the bifurcations in all directions, whereby, says Didi-Huberman, we do not close the boards collection before having trundled along some time, erratically, without specific intent, through its maze, its treasure. This is ochre and water, shorelines and gold under the blue sky, an atlas, «an excuse to root in the time frame our dreams made of the soul of the world» using the words of Maria Kodama about the Atlas of Borges.
The drawings are made of gouache and water, some on Caravelle vellum superior. All are called dead sea.
