Dead Flower Dinner

Öland, Sweden, 2017

Dead Flower Dinner was a cite specific work hosted at Kultivator an art and research center in Öland Sweden.

"Dead Flower Dinner is created of stolen flowers, recently alive things, disregarded boundaries, what is green and close, bright and dense, and a little of what is very bitter. In preparation for the event, Kim will harvest flowers and the result of flowers from the royal palace, from the spot behind the fire pit, from the road to the sea. She will think about three legged dogs and the containment of resources, press the distance between what is edible & useful, what is attractive & decorative, and what is dead."
