Composition 029 "Underwater"
Exhibition for Floral Installation
Artist: Zi Ye
For most urban people, flowers were defined by the places they die. Imagine the presence of a corsage, witnessing the rituals of all human emotion, but inevitably abandoned, decaying in the dumpster nearby. It is almost brutal to think such an empty moment is the highlight of their ephemeral presence. But still, there are always something unfinished in such terrific nothingness. Perhaps it is the fact that their beauty fade like the shallow aura they representing, making their mere presence, too horrible to stare.
“Forma Calli-” is a playful juxtaposition of Italian world “form” and a combining form means “Beautiful”. It showcases the weirdness and the dynamic between flowers and everyday objects. Instead of the fragile catalyst of the human purpose, flowers are presented as a monstrous embodiment of their own life and power.
