This installation is part of the 'Kindergarten' cycle that tackles the topic of the violation of children's rights, and is dedicated to children used as instruments of death in pseudo-religious terrorism. In the geometric forms of children's building blocks the ideal and the real become confused: play is no longer the natural dimension of childhood, but instead the rough and destructive land of adults' madness. Among the ruins of logic, the spasmodic images of blows landed by an unwitting child armed with a dagger strongly denounce the terrible violation of innocence, trampled in the name of senseless egoism.
