Shades of discomfort – Gigja Reynisdottir (Iceland)

On display from January 16 to March 16, the work “Shades of discomfort” by Gigja Reynisdottir.
This orchid, which Gigja made especially for “Het Raam”, is a flower in the ‘Homo Botanicus’ series. Gigja interweaves natural shapes and vegetation, with her wonder at the human condition.
The human flowers express the physical and psychological experience of being human and the complexity of human emotions, relationships and society.
The Orchid, a worshiped flower, but nevertheless a parasite that feeds on other plants, symbolizes how our consumer society is organized.
We don’t really ‘see’ what we are buying.
Come and see that flower!
