Temporary Arrangement

Endless Renovation, Corin Sworn’s solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery, incorporated a freshly cut floral bouquet which sat on the floor illuminated by an old school slide projector.   On five mirrored shelves were ten vases, spanning different decades from as early as 1880 to the late 1980s.   Once the flowers started wilting, almost weekly,  a vase was selected from one of the shelves and brought to the local florist, who was asked to design an arrangement according to the era of the vase. Here is a record.
