As if they had escaped from the mists of time, dishevelled creatures plunge into our eyes as if into a bottomless mirror.
These are the eternal survivors of history, extravagant individuals who have lived through pleasures and passing days, but also through chaos, wars and plagues. They keep appearing and disappearing, torn between attraction and restraint, arising from familiar scenes and suddenly revived desires.
Les Arrière-Mondes sheds a spectral light on the moments of stupor and uncertainty that follow human passions and where the enigma of our presence is unwittingly revealed.
