battlefield #4 / verdun, images sur table lumineuse, 240 x 57 x 87 cm, 2004  

Six backlit photographs displayed on a long table. Pictures showing an empty, bumpy, landscape, some bushes, an apparently domesticated nature. At first glance, everything suggests a golf course. Taking a closer look, one shall focus on some details that might challenge our understanding of these images. The artist has stuck some red pennants that turn the, touristy, historical 1st World War battlefield of Verdun into a golf course.
