The exhibition is organized around 33 portraits, realized on charred wood whose surface has been scraped, sanded. This is a substraction job, because the models were themselves substracted from life.
"Shooting Stars" is not only a project on memory, it is also a warning and a dream: that of restoring for a moment, to children persecuted by human wickedness, this childhood lost for ever and with it, life. "Shooting stars" is a prayer for all the victims of the Holocaust, their memories, their stolen smiles, their lost caresses, without, however, creating a banal pathos that generates a saturation of memory.
