Dixmude I is a work based on wanderings in the decommissioned military forts in Cherbourg harbour, in Normandy. I am exploring these intriguing places, linking them with more intimate stories of loss and discoveries. In this first serie, I am narrating the exile of king Charles X, who left France, after the 1830 revolution, from Cherbourg, never to return.
