About the artwork

The plan of the artist was to make drawings on paper and bury them in selected places. Villagers were to make drawings about the memories of their childhood or the community, which were then “planted” in the soil, from which flowers would bloom. The form of the drawings planted in lines suggests agriculture, a symbol for the community, and the seeds planted in the community suggest the soil, where future generations will grow up. Despite the plan and preparation, the work was not exhibited due to circumstances that prevented its completion.
