"Champollion who remembers the forests of Quercy and the golden ordeal of noble causes ...."
G. Mace in Le Dernier des Egyptiens (The Last Egyptian),
Editions Gallimard 1998

"Aubrac-Rushes is a video of re-filmed images, which we watch as if flicking through a sketchbook of drawings executed in pencil, charcoal, graphite ...
These "sketches" were snatched from real life during a stay in Aubrac with Martine Rousset and Mahine Rouhi in January 2007.
Some fragments of these promenades are also fossilized in silver photographic emulsion ...
"Erratic and restless - we stumble into the shots - which search for their lost path - the broken trajectory of a nowhere landscape - the brief and obstinate rhythm of a searching gaze - a real quest: where to go from here?
