ROLAND-GARROS / ' KAIROS '

"The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos and Kairos.
Kairos means the opportune moment for the accomplishment of a crucial action. The « supreme » moment." 

K A I R O S is a visual poem exploring the concept of time perception.
It's an allegorical vision of the French Open final 2016. After trying for years to succeed in Roland-Garros, Novak Djokovic triumphed at last to become the eighth man in history to complete the career Grand Slam.
