Amorphophallus, 2019

Amorphophallus, 2019 is an installation with 3 silkscreen prints on 2 textiles each textile hanging on a wooden bar. Among the textiles which are shown at Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como (IT), a special breed of flowers is pictured: amorphophallus titanium
This species is commonly referred to as corpse flowers. Their color and texture likened to human flesh. Their scent, to a body in decay. Their foul odor attracts insects such as flies, which transports pollen from male to female flowers. In some species the flower maybe over 100 centimeter in diameter, and weigh up to 10 kilograms. The artist’s rendering of the flowers is an intimation of their popularity such as in fabric design, which augmented after being imported to Europe.
