In this year of celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Expo 67, which revolved around the theme Terre des Hommes / Man and His World, it seems timely and relevant to reread a literary work that was central to that universal exposition¾Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s magnificent Terre des hommes, 1939, published in English as Wind, Sand and Stars¾and to reflect on the principles underlying his humanism. In this presentation titled Woman and Her World, which sets up a dialogue between two powerful works by two Québec artists, Dominique Blain and Sylvia Safdie, thoughts on spirituality, power, diversity and togetherness are shared, thoughts which seem more essential than ever, in a world where ideologies are splitting apart what would form a single whole, seen from the sky.
