In the Middle Ages, parchment being expensive, copyists reused ancient manuscripts to enroll new texts. For this, the old manuscripts were erased beforehand with pumice stone. The result of this practice is called palimpsest. That is why sometimes (thanks to ultra-violet radiation) we rediscover texts hidden behind psalms or gospels. The places
photographs are successive reappropriation of spaces, deletes, overlays, fields of symbolic battles, abandoned to the most extreme expressions. In the midst of this urban brutality
likes to bring back, as in the example of the palimpsest, the memory of a sophisticated culture and nostalgia for a lost refinement.
