Les chemins égarés (Paris)
From 2017-01-20 to 2017-02-18

Des paysages d’Europe Occidentale. Des causses, des étangs, des dunes littorales, des sous-bois, des buis, des graminées. Une nature qui semble avoir repris le dessus sur une civilisation détournée ou réfutée que rappellent un blockhaus, une centrale hydroélectrique, une usine sidérurgique ou un réservoir d’eau. Les paysages photographiés par Amélie Landry s’offrent comme des alentours. Nous ne les pénétrerons donc pas, sauf à halluciner.
