Athens is an oxymoron-city. Its flamboyant mythological heritage coexists with its dark and dramatic political-economic situation. Its sun shines with a thousand lights but crushes its streets. It is a blinding light that reveals

its violence and its twilight faces. And yet we feel a life force much more intense than

elsewhere. The idea of resistance takes on its full meaning. Bodies tirelessly rise up to face the chaos of history as one. In permanent revolution.

“In a landscape where nothing was recognizable, except the clouds, and in themiddle, in a field of forces crossing tensionsand destructive explosions, the tiny andfragile human body.” – Walter Benjamin

“My project is to give an account of this oxymoron in images, but also of the complexity of the contemporary in its different temporal layers. With this phrase of Walter Benjamin always in mind, as aninvisible and obsessive thread, seek light inthe ruins of Attica.” – Bérangère Fromont

‘Except the Clouds’ is a work on Athens but not only. It is above all a reflection on the place of the human in a civilization in decline and its fragility.
