TURNING BACKS is a project seeking the paradox : we are all included in exclusion.

The two rows of seats have no back and require each spectator to use the other as a backrest. To be back to back is after all to lay back on someone who is, at the same time, the person to whom we just turned our backs to.
This condition will also be a base to reflect on realities that, in spite of the fact that we are not looking at them, they cannot cease of touching us.
