marigold flowers, plastic hose, diameter 3 m

In the Rajastan province in India one don’t feel the need of doing anything ‘artistic’ because there is no art in western understanding, taking place in the determined context between the author - recipient - critics, the career or the renown. Over there, art or even better experiencing art is an everyday life. Hindu people generally speaking didn’t understand what we were doing, but they were respecting it. The exhibition was taking place in the time of a main holiday Shivaratri - that was the fact which brought us to mutual comprehension. Work in collaboration with Meg Belichick
