Une femme meurt. Et alors? can be translated to “A woman dies. So what?” That question might be asked when I found a house in France that was abandoned after its owner (a lady) died in her bed. 12 Years ago. When I stepped over the threshold, I found a house covered in cobwebs, but other than that it seemed as if the owner had just left to do some shopping.
Why is this house, 12 years later, still untouched? Who was the lady living in it? What made the inhabitants of the tiny village neglect her and the house for such a long time? So much so, that they didn’t even bother to take out the food of the fridge. Is there a reason to begin with, or what is? I wonder.
This developing series, documenting what is left of the house, is a first effort in finding answers to these (and more) questions.
