In the 1960s, an historic storm fell on Brittany. The ship of my grandparents, Le Dragon, moored in the port of Sauzon, was pulled off and carried out to the sea. Recently, on the occasion of the sale of the Belle Ile house, the Dragon's life jackets, whose existence I did not know, miraculously appeared. Thus, within the extensive Shipwreck project which addresses major current problems such as the drifts of capitalism, global economy, consumer society, pollution or climate, the installation The Dance of the drowned, which refers to the tragedy of the dinghies, occupies a very special place.
