Traversées is a visual circuit, without words, crossing created from snatches of text from “Seuils” (Thresholds) by Patrick Kermann, a stroll in the night under the guidance of a passeur, a gure in search of identity, in the trail of her image.

Chiaroscuro : the doors open, seven tresholds show up, seven stages of light where are played successive scenes belonging to the in-between : narrow pass between inside and outside, being and seeming, presence and absence, life and death… In these places of apparition, the vision is blurred by the coming into sight of forms, shadows, slides, plays of reflection, palimpsest writing.

Air, earth, fire, water, along with organic matter, go a long way to give a ritualistic dimension. Their density and fluidity come in tune with the internal feelings and collective memory of the travellers-spectators. A common space of intimacy opens out in the heart of this travel. On every treshold, individual beings experience together something that has no name; they feel the flaw, the frail instant of one’s presence to the world and to oneself.

 
 
 

A journey among shadows and lights, across a dream world, awaken by fragments
of life, of death, of half-unveiled intimacy.
