About the artwork

A vinyl hothouse near the entrance to the village. Inside are replicas of plants made out of everyday materials. They are the product of several workshops the artist held with the people of the village. “If you were a flower?” Each of the participants made a flower on this theme and these are also on display. Also displayed are “flower messages” which tell of wishes and hopes, creating a lively botanical garden. In the car park there is a small shed where the production process of this artwork is introduced and where the people of the village provide hospitality to visitors.
