“This time, Françoise Huguier brings back En route pour Behring – Notes de voyage en Sibérie from the other side of the earth, the Great North. What was this “adventuress” looking for? Was it, at first, to be elsewhere? Things seen and perceived. Naked landscapes, snow and ice, inhabited landscapes near industrial workshops or sea ports, little towns, villages, huts, tents, sleepy gulags, graveyards. Reindeers, walruses, whales, a white bear. Colors, smells. And faces, lives… Nenets, Tatars, Dolgans, Nganassans, Inuits, Bouriates, Russians, Armenieans, Lituanians… Françoise Huguier took six months to approach the mythic frontier between her childhood’s geography and an adult dream. En route pour Behring is her log of this journey”.
