The inspiration for the work comes from this idea, and purify the duality betweenblanc and black, light and darkness, life and death. It's a play with space, holesand of the cracks in the walls. It also introduces casts of leaves from the fig tree, relating to their ability to grow through broken concrete, growing through cracks in the wall and to be reborn from complete desecration.
