Concrete, white lilies, purple and white carnations, and green roses, 2016
Still-life, still-life is a time-based installation composed of a two bouquets coming out from two blocks of concrete. The two concrete blocks with the flowers stand at a very short difference from the other and as the exhibition proceeds, the flowers will die and slowly droop down and fall. The flowers reference the object hood of the “I’m sorry” bouquet exchanged between lovers or perhaps sympathetic funeral flowers left on a tomb or gravestone.As time moves the sculpture becomes a tomb. Standing beside the other in a moment of intimacy that will, as flowers tend to do, fade and die within time. However, there is hope as the two fade together.
