+ work

The museum lobby is filled with transparent plants. The artist’s work is about memory and feelings that remain in a space for a long time. Memory is something that suddenly crops up from places where people have resided for a long time. These traces of memory spread and grow in all directions. The plants that have been installed here are made using hologram films. At different angles the plants show different colors thus meaning that even one single memory has many different sides.
