english

From France, you dial the number +225 to reach Cote d’ivoire. It was my first time on the African continent, it reminds me of my parents’ Haïti, the heat, the mosquitoes, waking up to the neighbor’s hen, the smiles, sharing, the evangelical songs on a Sunday morning, street food, taxis, the soil, my roots...

Born and raised in France, I confront my vision of this country from another continent with my western lifestyle, some shot seemed to be answering one another, others stroke contrast. From Ivory Coast you dial the number +33 to reach France.

+225...33+ is a phone call between Abidjan and Paris.

De la France, on compose le +225 pour appeler la Côte d'Ivoire. En decouvrant le continent africain pour la premiere fois, j'ai l'impression d'y reconnaitre la même atmosphère qu'en Haïti, le pays de mes parents. J'y retrouve la chaleur et les moustiques, le réveil par le coq du voisin, les sourires et le partage, les chants évangéliques du dimanche matin, la street-food et les taxis, la Terre et les racines...

Né et élevé en France, je confronte mon regard sur ce pays d'un autre continent à ma vie d'occidental, en question/réponse et/ou en comparaison. De la Côte d'Ivoire, on compose le +33 pour appeler la France.

+225...33+ est un coup de fil entre les villes d'Abidjan et Paris.
