Is it possible to laugh at a tragedy? For Clémentine Mélois, the answer is yes. During the two months of the first confinement in March-April 2020 following the pandemic, she fixed in images full of humour and poetry her reactions to the baroque news of this moment that thought it was scientific.
Famous for her hijacking of the covers of literary classics that have been reworked and put through the pop culture mill (Cent titres, Grasset 2014), the visual artist and writer delivers an irresistible chronicle. We meet a Laurent Delahousse in hair distress, a packet of chloroquine chewing gum, a concert ticket to attend Macron's televised speech or a vinyl record of the famous Alain Gestes Barrière...
Funny and offbeat, worried and sometimes biting, tender and always hilarious, this book reminds us that humour is the best way to bring human beings closer together by only putting anxiety at a distance!
