From the exhibition calalogue:


The steel structure mimics industrial scaffolding, while the flowers are a reference to the Baroque - a period in the 17th century where artists worked with large formats and extravagant motifs and colours to awaken the senses. In the encounter between the soft and hard materials, the perishable flowers and the industrial steel, emerge new references to for instance Stilleben and Memento mori, which are widely used terms in art history. In this way, the installation transforms recognizable symbols and brings them into a contemporary context.
