“The birds make silence exist”
Each moment is fragile. Yet, it’s fragility is the very same thing which makes it beautiful. It should, if anything, make us more present in these moments.
“The birds make silence exist” is a series of pictures made during the second lockdown in autumn 2020. A collaboration between two artists, Vivi Kassara (GR) and Lara Buffard (FR). They explored together still moments who allowed to listen to the silence and embraced it in baroque visions.
