Ewes means water in Langue d’oil, an old French language.

The work arose “from a need to reflect on our world and its future. Water as life, flowing, grandness, strength, joy, purity …, but also as drought, luxury, sweat …”. Scarcity of water affects all continents and more than 40 per cent of the population on the planet. In the not too distant future, two thirds of the world population could find itself faced with a shortage of this liquid element.

If we do not have water, if it does not rain … Would water prices rise? Would it become such a luxury as champagne? What could one offer a thirsty person if there is no water?
