  • The topic of the work is non-violent protest and ‘the power of weakness’. The work is dedicated to female journalists
    who were detained and imprisoned while reporting on the protests in November. I  want to use this work
    as a metaphor for the female way of resistance. Women implement a different logic of defiance, a fundamentally
    different system of relationships. Flowers can be seen as a female weapon – beautiful and often fragile in
    appearance, but able to grow against a rigid authoritarian power system.
