This drawing is based on the photographs taken by Gérard Drolc during the Nancy prison revolt in January 15, 1972. On that day, the inmates of the Charles III prison climbed onto the roofs to be visible and throwing hundreds of tiles to display their opposition to the injustices of prison conditions. Through this story, Nicolas Daubanes is interested in the idea of revolt: of rebellion against an established condition. Beyond a simple refusal, it is the poetic act fascinated him. To clim on a roof is to rise up, to elevate, and to gain higher ground.
