    At the end of the day, the central square of Zolote fills up a little. The remaining children of the village play on the few damaged and dilapidated swings and slides that still stand upright. Families watch them and take the opportunity to talk to each other about the daily news in a 'settled' conflict. Few of them want to talk about war, all of them want peace, an end to fighting, demining, that it be the same as before. But they no longer even dare to dream about it...' When the war is...

'this modelling is the result of an emotion that they try to express, to externalize. They feel, they are afraid, they are frightened, it gives 'I don't want to see that at all'.

Before, the company exported part of its production. This is now impossible because too little coal is extracted from the ground, due to the flooding of the mines following the closure of two of them (located in separatist territory). The priority is therefore to pump water in the hope of being able to resume normal...

    Throughout the main road leading to Zolote, signs indicate the presence of anti-personnel mines. In the fields, in the woods, all around the city the land is mined. Residents can no longer fetch dead wood for heating in winter, picking berries or mushrooms that used to help them survive. They don't know where the mines are, but they know they are everywhere around them. Some, however, still try to benefit from natural resources that have no other choice, at their own risk and peril......
