errorist attacks, nuclear threats, blinding political tensions: fear rules the world, but also our lives. What is our money still worth? How will climate change determine our future? Fear is an instinctive emotion and largely determines our actions. In response, we are seeking control as something to hold on to: lack of control makes us feel powerless. On the other hand, too much control makes us feel uneasy and suspicious. Do we want to be spied on by security cameras? Is our data safe on the internet? Fear has a strong impact on everyone: it spreads like wildfire. How do psychiatrists and psychologists deal with this fear that is omnipresent? They seek methods of treatment, from therapeutic talks to deep brain stimulation. Or are we in fact attracted by fear – when it is packaged as entertainment – and does it protect us against impending doom – as a survival mechanism?
The exhibition Anxiety wants to show the many faces of this emotion, since fear is something of all times and cultures but has always been experienced, cultivated and combatted in a different way. From ‘God-fearing’ to fear of one’s fellow man, from highly personal phobia to mass hysteria.

This year is starting with some good news. YOKAINOSHIMA will be exhibited at the great Musée des Confluences in Lyon, France from June 2018 to August 2019. Yes, 14 months! Which will give you the time to visit this show where the photographs will meet the beautiful collections of the museum in a 700 m2 space all dedicated to the Japanese spirits. Still some month of work before the opening, but that’s a real chance to challenge the series and try to present it in another scenography. The series will be also displayed in Caen, at the Arthoteque, and the Musée de la Castre in Cannes. Same time, we’re now working on the next book, which will be the result of a four years research which started in New Orleans in 2014 and will finish this year in Central America. More about this very soon.
