The relationship we have with our dead and the way in which the remains of the deceased are treated paint a picture of our society and way of thinking. But where indeed are our dead? And what should our opinion be of a society that conceals them? In fact, customs seem to have evolved and what we used to see in Europe until the 1960s (notably thanks to post-mortem photography) has apparently become a thing of the past. The objective of this exhibition, this short journey to the land of the dead, is to give visibility to something that we no longer or only rarely see today.
