On a eu du Mal tells five stories about characters that have troubles dealing with their emotions, in very different contexts: two kids in a Canadian campground, a sociopath collecting cone pines in the forests of Switzerland, a ski-resort worker stuck in an avalanche, a jogger in peril and a volunteer for experiments on memory distortions in a summer university.
Relation of the novel to the artist’s practice
On a eu du Mal is the result of an artist residency at the Centre for Affective Sciences and Geneva Neuroscience Centre. It shares influences (Neuroscience, Tourism, Landscape) with other artworks by Jérémie Gindre of the same period.
