The photographs on matte paper and tracing, representing facades of buildings, seaside or palm trees, are approximately taken from the same point of view, but at different times of the day. Then they are cut and rearranged in a radial arrangement. Indeed, these landscapes are arranged according to "Ars Plumaria" headdresses of the Indians of Brazil, and constitute so many territories, horizons folded, glued, embossed, offset, superimposed. Subtracted from immediate legibility, they become worn-out worlds, like real headdresses that Juliette-Andréa Elie puts on during performances.

In photographs printed on tracing paper, several landscapes are superimposed like geological stratifications. In the flesh of these diaphanous images, sculptured reliefs at the dry point float, nebulous.
