The scenery portrayed in David Claerbout’s The quiet shore (2011) presented as a loop on a big screen in Garage 50, is located in Brittany, a region known for having the strongest tides in Europe. The beach is particularly fascinating at its lowest tide, deserted and with watersoaked sand. Emerging here is an image so calm that it reflects the surrounding world like a mirror.
