Jonas is the name of a child who frequents the Parc de la Villette in Paris. He balances on milk churns that have been knocked over, symbolising all the milk spilt by European diary farmers protesting against crippling agricultral reforms. His posture and the associated objets evoke the themes of Lucy + Jorge Orta's survey exhibition Food / Water / Life, which took place in the park's contemporary gallery from May to September 2014.
