"D’abord, il n’y a rien, ensuite un rien profond, puis une profondeur bleue" is a dictum by Gaston Bachelard from his book Air and Dreams (1943).

English translation:

"First there is nothing, next there is depth of nothingness, then a profundity of blue."

Or:

"First there is nothing, then there is a deep nothing, then there is a blue depth."

The dictum was used in Yves Klein's exhibition Le vide in April 1958 at the Galerie Iris Clert.
