This work on the representation of light was begun during my stay at the Villa Medici between 1996 and 1998, then reworked at the Casa de Velazquez between 1999 and 2001 and resumed in Kyoto in the spring of 2018. We can capture the light, cultivate it within us and give it back its fruits like trees, the gift and the counter-gift, as taught to us by the so-called primitive societies whose ways of life are so well adapted to their ecosystem. But in the end, it is our relationship to the world that is at stake here: this book of hours is the sound experience, from night to night.
