1. The Mountain / 2. To the End of the Earth / 3. The Storm.

The behaviour of the different elements (Water, Fire, Air, Earth) that we can feel, touch, see and particularly that we can hear, were the inspiration for this work. Through the reminiscence of a solo voyage by bike right to the end (“jusqu’au boute”) of the 138 East, which runs parallel to the north side of the St. Lawrence River, I realised the idea. The first stage is one of confrontation: ascending a mountain beneath an unforgiving sun and the constant effort it demands. The second part is a contemplation on a nocturnal landscape. The river, campfire and starry sky lead us into another confrontation, this time, with a violent storm.
