The Sky in Us


This is an essay with two voices, an artist’s and an anthropologist’s, exploring what the relation between air, breathing, art and ethics might be. The conversation turns around an artwork produced by Anaïs in the context of ça remue ! in Grenoble, in the autumn of 2020: Le Parlement de Nuages. This work draws our attention to the sky. Not as an object of contemplation, nor as an element of the landscape, nor as mirror to our earthly lives, but rather as the milieu on which, from one breath to the next, our lives depend. If the air is that on which all life, human and nonhuman, depends, its very dependability allows us to go on with the tasks of living, paying it no mind.
