465 Orchids From My Lover (2019)

Collaborative therapeutic artwork by Matilde Søes Rasmussen & Marie Flarup Kristensen.

At the end of 2019 my lover left me. The only thing she left behind was the bedsheet on which we had been sleeping together and a magazine with photographs of 465 orchids.
The mechanical motion of glueing paper onto fabric soothed my aching heart.

My lover had once told me, I would never buy you flowers, but this time I got my way.
