In Northern France, a large quantity of World War I metal scraps remains in the soil. After collecting exploded bombshells from the farmers, Coline Gautier chose to repurpose these steel cylinders into cutlery by slicing, forging and grinding them.
Then afterwards came back to Loos en Gohelle (the town where she collected the material), to organize a diner where inhabitants were invited to share a diner with the cutlery. A simple way to connect people together, open discussions and above all transform a negative material into something positive.
