From October 2009 to February 2010, I did an Art residency with the "Fondation d'Auteuil".
I stayed in one of those "house" for teenagers to experiment and understand better what it was like to grow in such a place. I involved 12 teenagers in the creation of their bedroom of their dreams.
12 models of bedrooms where created and put together in a 3, 70 m. high "dancing", mirrored Tower. This project is called "the tower of the children's dreams" ( La Tour aux rêves d'enfants).
This project was part of a bigger project set up by the Fondation d'Auteuil and called: "Give roots and wings to children" ("Donnons aux enfants des racines et des ailes")
