The Language of Flowers

HD video, 4‘ 10‘‘ /colour, silent/

An elderly woman and man alternately appear in the frame and place different kinds of plants and flowers on a table. The scenario of the dialogue consists of sentences, which are interpreted as symbolic meanings of individual flowers using floriography. The camera captures a quiet quarrel in gestures, during which a rich still life arises on the table. Only subtitles reveal the content of this silent shootout.
