Dust to *dust is the final chapter of a long-term project The Sky is on the Earth, a series of interventions with the inherited archive of Jacques Bourlanges (Marie Ilse’s grandfather), author of an intriguing esoteric theory of a correlation between star constellations and French geography. After working with this rich material for four years, we completed the project with a last gesture of « letting go » of the archive.
