Bon voyage

Karine Birgé

She was 102 years old. It was the end of summer 2018. My grandmother made the choice to leave France and go to Belgium, to die with dignity. The choice of a “gentle and easy” death – in Greek, euthanasia. I look back at the events leading up to her short-lived exile and my memories of this difficult journey. Using the audio clips that I saved, with a theatre of puppets and objects, a few disjointed skeletons, and eerie figurines, including Chantal Goya and Doctor Frankenstein, I recreate a world around my grandmother, who departed in strange tranquillity.
