After having developed a long work on the water wars in Iraq and in relation with his geopolitical approach, Émeric Lhuisset became interested in political ecology and the notion of Anthropocene. “In these struggles against global warming, we no longer have a nationality, we all are acting for the common good, because we are all citizens of the world”. Going from the local to the global, he will start from the site of the most important ecological disaster in France, the explosion of AZF factory, and will progressively try to build an iconography (photographs and videos) around a flag, as a symbol object. A symbol that is both that of the planet but also that of everything around us. A symbol of belonging, of a common identity, to the same world, the Earth.

“Time is out joint” wrote William Shakespeare in Hamlet. Time is out of tune, disrupted, disjointed, disoriented. More than ever, the future is uncertain, between an ecosystemic disaster diagnosed as a new disappearance of species on a planet Earth, made worn out by the ravages of extractivism and mass consumerism (Anthropocene), and the invention of a new collective way of thinking, commensurate with a collapse perceived by each other."
