Entry Description

The plants switch phases of beauty with other quiescent and inconspicuous. In the winter break, we see them as dead. The work focuses on this period of long sleep and on what plants may be able to dream. The plants dream of what they don’t have neither more nor less than us. These dreams have the butterflies as leading characters; in my view, they represent more than any other living thing awakening, heat, sun, spring. They are not only the actresses of the dream but even the bearers of dreams. The symbol of transformation and rebirth is also at psychic level
