The movie Breathe in-Breathe out has been produced as part of the Nomadic Nights of the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain for the exhibition Trees.


A contributor to the exhibition Trees, the philosopher Emanuele Coccia has invited the artist Christine Rebet for this Nomadic Night. On this occasion, she has created Breathe in-Breathe out, an animated film with colorful images, inspired by her journeys in the north of Thailand, where we follow the spiritual path of a monk in the mountains. On the screen, animal, plant, and architectural transformations evoke nature and its devastation. Narrator for a night, Emanuele Coccia contributes his thoughts to a collective consideration of the politics of the living world.
