Maÿliss and Lukas had the opportunity to present on numerous occasions some of the Fragments to university students.
The interests these interventions triggered amongst art students has given birth to great collaborations in the conception of workshops organized with various educational institutions.
These workshops run for a period of 4 weeks, mostly relying on volunteer work and targets students living in underdeveloped countries.
The first of these workshop took place between august and september 2015 at the UIEM (Universidad Intercultural del Estado de Mexico) in collaboration with Dr Relder Leguz Gutiérrez Ruiz, chief of department of licence in Intercultural Art and Design.
Entitled «Finding your own vision» the workshop focuses on individual artistic research and the conceptual development of a work as well as staging in a specific space.

“The exhibition is the fruit of the month long seminar, «Finding your own vision», with french artists Maÿliss and Lukas Zpira from the Chaøs Chrønicles and the bachelor students of the arts and intercultural design department, under the supervision of the University of intercultural arts of Mexico. The research carried out by the students focused on a very personal approach, encouraging them through experience both collective and individual, to express their thoughts and develop their own vision of the world surrounding them, but most of all to understand this world and the meaning and place ancestral culture has in the contemporary era. The result is the construction of an intimate labyrinth like space, without a beginning nor an end, where spaces are filled with strong symbolism, sometimes transgressive, letting us reflect upon our own inner chaos.”
