For 19 years (1981-2000), ordinary women, most of them mothers, occupied a military base and set up the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp. They fought hard, peacefully, and unisex, against the installation of nuclear missiles by the United States, right here in England.
In order to mobilize the population to their cause, they imagined many actions, performances, production of objects. They took the habit of singing in resistance to the police, and more generally to the "world of domination", for the preservation of future generations, the hope of peace, the protection of humanity, and the respect of nature.
The collages were made from archive images of the struggle, with a chisel, in order to evacuate any form of oppression and to reveal the language of bodies, of gestures, tender and united. To show what links, rather than what separates.
