< Résonances > is an invitation to discover Korea and France through the ritual of two atypical farmers. One is a woman diver or 'Haenyeo' from the island of Jeju. The other is a shepherdess making goat cheese in a hamlet in the Pyrenees. They reveal themselves through their relationship to the animal world, earth, air and the liquid element. The ghostly mist absorbs the animals and their owners, while the black silhouettes of divers disappear in the water. Thus the two worlds resonate.
