“Je tue plus que le Cancer, Je tue plus que le Sida, Je tue plus que la Guerre, Je tue 15 personness chaque minute.”
“I kill more than cancer, I kill more than AIDS, I kill more than war, I kill 15 people every minute.”

Great installation made for World Water Day by Solidarités International for which water was the medium. This special event was held from 17th to 22nd March 2010 at Place du Palais Royal, Musée du Louvre in Paris.

“I am the leading cause of death in the world, I am unsafe drinking water. Unsafe drinking water kills 8 million people per year.”

This is Solidarités International’s major combat in over 15 countries.


Solidarités International: I kill more than cancer, I kill more than AIDS, I kill more than war, I kill 15 people every minute.
