This exhibition consists of an animation trilogy and four AR-enabled still images created using natural media and more than one hundred plants. The artworks evoke the emotional journey of a woman in love – from falling in love to finding the love of a lifetime and marriage.
The three-part animation visually focusses on plant growth and development, from the germination of seeds and the growth of stems and leaves to flowering and fruiting. Musically, it is set to three parts (poems II, III and V) of the famous song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben by the German Romantic composer Robert Schumann (1810–1856).
Plants as metaphors for womanly love and the music score from the Romantic era lend the exhibition a rich and delicate emotional feel.
