This suite was composed to accompany an exhibition with the same name. Fot both the artists K-Rol and Catherine Seznec, art enables to identify cultural roots they differently inherit from. They find in the primitive art the seeds that, like ligntings, go across centuries and history to directly feed their personal own creativities.
