Ritournelle is about our domestic territories. How do we go through this archaic and primitive gesture of marking our territory in our everyday lives ? How is this gesture related to our animal nature, but also to our childhood ? Whatever the scale of our boundaries (a piece of rock or a whole country), they are what makes our habits our home ; our familiar gestures our family. It is with the help of these little innocuous actions that we set our touchstones, that we take the measure of the world around us, that we define our home. We mark our space, we stand out in time, through a rhythm, a ritual, a repeated ritournelle. The ritournelle, with its circular aspect, with its eternal recurrence, evokes the memory that is attached to our living spaces.
