Mémoires ennoyées, 2021, photographs.
The synthetic images in the series Mémoires ennoyées were created on the North Shore, at the Manicouagan meteorite crater, the largest visible on the planet. Site of the ancient Lake Manicouagan and Lake Mouchalagane on the territory of the Pessamiulnuat people, the crater has been flooded since the Daniel-Johnson Dam was built in 1969. Abstract in appearance, the images were made using a bathymetric echo sounder to measure the depths of the reservoir. An underground forest is still there, its ghost pines rocking softly in the swell.
