Sous cloche
brings together Andrez and Saskia. Over a period of four years (2009-2013) I have photographed them and their
immediate surroundings in the eastern part of the French Pyrenees – an area I’ve continually been drawn to.

After a nomadic existence, Flemish-born Saskia was diagnosed with cancer. From then on, she tried to defeat her illness
in her own way, without any medical intervention, merely through the strength of her own body and mind. Unable to find
a permanent home, she kept moving from place to place, restlessly. After four years, Saskia lost her battle with cancer.
Andrez is a Spanish widower who, after the tragic death of his wife and unborn child, decided to live in solitude high up
in the mountains. His home consists of two separate places, both of them without electricity or other modern conveniences,
from which he tends his cows and those of several neighbouring farmers.
Saskia and Andrez never met.

Sous cloche is a slide installation with audio track and also a book published by Kominek Books, Berlin.
The work was first presented at San Serriffe, Amsterdam, as a screening with two synchronised slide projectors,
accompanied by a live reading of text fragments from the book.
