Inspired by notions of Victorian Flower language, a secret form of communication during the 19th century, many of these flowers have several meanings.
Through coded, symbolic and practical associations these seemingly benign decorative pieces facilitate a subversive reading. The flower arrangements on view may be read as hopeful, used as a poisonous weapon, induce abortions, denote LGBTQ+ identity, or refer to powerful women from Greek myth.
Exhibition organized and commissioned by the Delaware Art Museum. Images by Carson Zullinger, Kenne Ek and myself.
