serial project, ongoing
various kinds of flowers
pedestals, fact sheets
This series consists of flower arrangements recreated according to the press photos of state receptions or important meetings of political leaders on live issues. The meanings of the flowers were then decoded by the Victorian Flower Language Dictionary. In German there is a saying: »Etwas durch die Blume sagen«, to speak through the flower, which means to criticise or to express an opinion in a roundabout way.
The titles of the individual works match the press picture captions. Title, press picture and Victorian flower language translations are present on fact sheets and displayed in the exhibition space.
The compositions of these individual works are of a subject nature and refer to current political events.
