Cabanes imaginaires autour du Monde : World’s in the making - Book

Sale price Price €49.00 Regular price

Worlds in the making is a collection of images and testimonies from communities around the world. It develops universal human themes such as childhood and adolescence in the face of history, women, the right to choose one's love, discrimination, ecology, freedom and death. Over time, the project has become more and more similar to a travelling theatre. Large format installations are made outdoors with the help of a part of the village or neighbourhood. These heroes of a day take to the stage, actors of their own story, the word rises to create a dialogue with their entire community.

Nicolas Henry pays special attention to personal anecdotes, dreams or collective wrath, daily difficulties  or transformational initiatives, weaving a universe around a story he has been told, and proposes his resolution in crafted form. Based on the story,  the team, with the help of the local population, creates an object, a device, a thingamajig, a centre-pin  of frenetic activity.
