Où commence le ciel ? Cette question apparemment légère a été posée par Corinne Mercadier à quinze auteurs: architectes, artistes, écrivains, chorégraphe, danseuse, plasticiens… (Stéphane André, Mary Canal, Alain Fleischer, Christian Gattinoni, Liliane Giraudon, François Grey, Denis Lanzenberg, Daniel Larrieu, Philippe Le Meur, Sabine Macher, Jean-Baptiste Para, Mireille Roll, Paul Louis Rossi, François Seigneur, Jean-Jacques Viton).
Préface Charles-Arthur Boyeret aussi à trois auteurs photographes. Tous ont cherché un lieu, donné leur point de vue, traversé les mythes, retourné la question dans tous les sens en expliquant par des écrits et des images où et comment, pour eux, le ciel a commencé.
