The idea of the first botanical gardens is said to lean on the recreation of garden of eden, the time before the fall, before the first sin, when the whole world used to serve to man. With the Enlightenment obsession to control the world, to know the world and with the age of discovery, which lead to colonialism at the end developed the means for the “exotic” artifacts to be imported from their native lands and considered to be the natives of “cabinet de curiosities”.
Combining the flower motifs on the carpet in my family house and the botanical illustration, with its scientific visual language, this series of work deals with the far and near, familiar and strange.
