In The Absence of African Violet

Installation 2017
Mirros, photo, plant and wood

The plant is one of the most common household plants but in the wild it is in danger of extinction due to climate change.
Thanks to Nikolaj Scharff and Dimitar S. Dimitrov at the University of Københagen and Oslo, for the photo of the African Violet in its natural habitat. More about their project here:
