In october 2014, Romain Kronenberg and Thierry Payet are asked by the Mardin University of Fine Arts
to speak about their artistic work for the Biennale of the same city — postponed because of the political
context. This occasion makes both artists realize that they are approaching similar topics : otherness and
territories from opposite angles. A dialogue is following the presentation, that leads to the desire to show
in vis-à-vis two elements of their work for the Mardin Biennale — that finally takes place in may 2015.
