Herbarium in an aluminium frame of a pressed, dried 28 hedera helix leaves
A herbarium collection of 28 pressed and dried ivy leaves is framed in an aluminum profile. The leaves are formed in the same size and square shape and positioned symmetrically. An act of domestication and assimilation takes place here. The work points to the rapidly increasing violence and oppression due to stereotypes, cultural prejudice, discrimination and social indifference in our daily lives. It speaks also about the anthropocentric ideology of our society and its impact on this planet.
