» When I think about it, I realise that the initial project, was ‘Salome’ presented in 1990, in part at the Institut du Monde Arabe and in part at Beaubourg, Everything else came from that. A project created with Michel Butor. It was my first installation, already establishing a link between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, evoking passion in its absolute, up to the sacrifice of one’s own life, the passion for a woman that can lead one to kill one’s best friend. All the paroxysms come together: love, passion, sacrifice. All the ingredients are mixed together. » (Rachid Koraïchi, extract from The Ancestors linked to the Stars).
