When there is time, life finds a way to rise above. In the darkness to the earth, or in the light towards the sky. There is a greatness in it, an elusive power. And within this power, everyone can create their own truth.
When bright pink offshoots grew from my potato in my kitchen cupboard, I realized that there is a world behind vegetables that I didn’t know very well. A world in which growth is central. I started researching this growth process in my homemade laboratory.Taking a scientific, visual and religious perspective. A process that normally ends can be brought back to life. Living sculptures can arise from leftovers with a simple action. What I once saw as a product in a hurried consumer society, I give new practical, aesthetic and spiritual meanings. I show that the miracle behind the force of nature is also in the vegetables we eat. In something that is daily and self-evident. Negative associations can also arise from the combination of growth and food. I want to convert this intangibility into wonder and awe by giving a new perspective on vegetables.
