Time is Still

16th – 21st Century

During a six week residency at Work in Progress¬†at Roodkapje, in Rotterdam, Denise Collignon created and exhibited a series of five still life installations entitled ‘The Still Life as Archive’. The exhibition focused on analyzing the traditions of flower arranging for still life, from the 16th century to the present.

The archive was documented weekly by Antje Peters through a series of photographs which then became the starting point to create this information graphic, which depicts an evolving iconography of flowers through history. The marble pattern in the background was custom made by hand for this project.
