Regarder le Soleil (Staring at The Sun) is a machine acting as a music box somehow, melting a sculptural installation of eleven masks made of lead that were increased from time to time by the eleven relatives linked to those faces, taking place in a circle as a room for a chorus. The intensity of the mortuary symbolic was amplified by the intensity of their voices, the power of musical language that was claiming a declaration for the living, the community, the beauty of nature through our primitive instinct of creating beauty as a way of resistance to life and death.
