The work consists of making 33 books that contain memories of personal conversations or stories from the media in relation to crisis situations, during or after a conflict. Each book is unique. The hand-made books are deliberately left in bookstores under different labels (History, Sociology, Theatre, etc.). The project intends to simulate the individual/collective recourse to forgetfulness after a period of crisis. As if nothing happened.

Le projet consiste à créer 33 livres qui contiennent des souvenirs de conversations personnelles ou des récits provenant des médias, tous deux reliés à des situations de crises, durant ou après un conflit. Chaque livre est unique. Les livres, faits à la main, sont placés de manière délibérée dans des librairies commerciales sous différentes catégories (Histoire, Sociologie, Théâtre, etc.). Le projet propose de simuler le recours à l’oubli, de manière individuelle ou collective, après une période de crise. Comme si rien ne s’était passé.
