"Photographs of food that was loosely hand-moulded (in an infantile way?). Vanilla and strawberry ice cream, rice pudding with more or less cinnamon (Gautama Buddha's final meal before his enlightenment was a large bowl of rice pudding), richly-tossed butterhead lettuce in pale sepia colours, somehow heaped into figures. To this, add one picture of slightly droopy chrysanthemums, from which the colour green --calming-- is filtered out. The photographs are accompanied by text posters. Green is avoided (negated?) or altered digitally. Green is calming, or at least said to be. Now and then, the rice pudding blushes.
Rice and ice cream and butterhead (for the adults?). I bring the flowers.
The funny in the figure of the mother.
Side dishes and desserts – no main course; no middle. And death or flowers of death, devoid of green.
Bodies are absent. I am not there. I am hungry for your absence. Photography is passive-aggressive, as you might perceive.
It is interesting what comes out of pictures. I like time loops. As a rather loving, motherly, performative gesture, I will reproduce the moulded vanilla ice cream from the pictures at the opening, for the public's pleasure."
