The video installation


Children question themselves on three main points:

Who am I ? What is important to me? What do I want to save?

On the one hand, Field of Leaves is an image of hope: an ideal field where all children can cultivate, take care and share 'the land' where they live. A space where we take the time to listen to their voice.

On the other hand, it is a reflection on reality. Children are lying on the ground. Are they good? Can they to eat? Are they planted or rather buried?

The future must be cultivated.
