Les Alignements de Carnac sont un jeu d’enfant


The Alignements de Carnac site is a set of 3000 raised stones with a height ranging from 0.60 to 4 meters, spread over more than 8 kilometers.

It dates to about 4000 years before J-C during the so-called Neolithic period. The meaning of this place and the meaning of these stones is unknown to us today. The knowledge of the men who erected them, inaccessible, because in this past too distant and not found, we have forgotten. We saw this field of stones as a game of destinies, a sort of huge game of goose, and we imagined between these menhirs, a path. Starting from a house, he winds in the middle of these thousand menhirs, divides into other paths, then others, and so on. It’s life, the choices we make, the things we aspire to, that draw between the stones, a way of life, different for everyone.

I interviewed elderly people about their lives, their choices, and I imagined the life of an old man, who tells himself, as his path unfolds. The story begins in the 1930s, from this house built at the beginning of the last century, in the middle of this stone field. At the exit of this house, your path appears and draws in front of you all along your course on these Alignements. Each passage between two menhirs represents a door, and at each of these passages, your path divides into other paths, then others, etc.
