“Chelidonium majus”, 2019. Clay plate and celandine. Mahogany and chipboard frame 38 x 57 x 5 cm.
Chelidonium majus, with the common name Celandine, comes from a collection of plants collected in my immediate environment and which are generally considered to be “weeds”. Like a herbarium, the plant is dried and then set in a clay slab. Anchored inside the material it appears like a fossil, fragile and touching at the same time.
