Two-thirds of K (Exil) consists of images of women and children who stayed alone at home when the men were exiled. The views are never complete (being either cut up or in pieces in the image) and alternate positive and negative, complementary and contradictory, to bring out the distress of people left in their country and abandoned in difficult land. On what we call the 'joints', we engrave words in Kabylian or in French, echoing two male voices. The whole is set to original music by Djamel Tareb.
