Flowers are something that speaks to us in nature. But how do flowers speak to us? And what does nature mean in an age of genetics and expanding possibilities for producing nature in the lab? Questions like these form the background for this exhibition, which encompasses works of painting, graphic art, sculpture, photography and installations. Flowers have a long tradition in art as manifestations of beauty and symbols of ephemerality. Pop Art returned to these topics in the 1960s. In the years since then, flowers have become a motif that can be connected to aesthetic, philosophical and political questions alike. Today art dedicated to flowers is being made with scientific methods in the fields of BioArt and urban ecology.
