Having recourse to the most current technologies, Yves Hayat does not cease confronting, in his synchronous and provocative summary, these icons of the past with those of the present. He has an undeniable capacity to identify in the universe of pictures and signs, these illusory presences which haunted the collective imaginary of a mass society and to assign a physical place to an immaterial procession of ghosts that come from the memory and the consciousness.
