(Im)possible Bouquets

86 - 2018

(Im)possible Bouquets takes as its starting point a concept from the Dutch still-life tradition whereby flowers that could not naturally bloom together in the same season and location are painted together in a fantastical arrangement. This concept of the impossible bouquet is used to unpack recent works by Taryn Simon and Yto Barrada, in which the artists consider how the natural world has been usurped by the power mechanisms that too freely redefine our notions of place.
