Odds and Ends considers the end as guiding principle in everything around us, and delineates a portrait of an abandoned, still-smoking Earth. Marie Quéau has set out to explore lands and terrains that might be vectors for her anxieties about the future. She often undertakes this work as an obituary for our planet, harking to its accidents and its slow collapse. This investigation progresses as a hopscotch of sorts, one place immediately leading to the next. Over five years, wind, earth, and fire have guided her in piecing together this fatal fable. Time has been intentionally frozen to muffle life. This series is, in her eyes, a poem without men.
