Maria Ikonomopoulou
Specimen 4
(City Flowers)

 

The box contains specimens of the work City Flowers.

Ikonomopoulou takes photographs of exterior wall flora that inhabitants of big cities individually take care of and offer to the public space. At different places she makes installations of these images transformed as cut out flowers. City Flowers is a continuous project, which started in Athens and has also traveled to the Netherlands and Mexico, each time inspiring new means of involving the anonymous care in public space and making it visual and personal.

The boxes came out of the organizing process of the piece, during the search for collecting and conserving solutions for the material. Each box is signed at its base by the artist.
