I understood that these stones don't need to get to know me; that nature does not need me. That only I need her. Nothing destined Sabrina for an artistic career. Raised by a fragile mother in a modest environment, she has few prospects for the future. Until the day when, during a school visit to the Rodin Museum, she discovers her vocation: she will devote her life to art. From then on, Sabrina is totally dedicated to this project. Student insecurity is quickly compensated for by strong friendships and the richness of artistic research. But the upheavals of his love life and the upheavals of a world whose collapse seems inevitable soon changed his trajectory. Through the fate of a contemporary artist, Katrina Kalda questions the place of art in a world in crisis. His writing, harmonious and confident, supports this emotional novel.
