Flowers, those that fall

Aino Aksenja

This piece has three parts:Vernal equinox, where the protagonist plays ‘Loves me, loves me not’; Autumnal equinox, where she has given up the game and is burning lantern flowers with a lighter; and Solstice, a flowing collection of moving images where flowers, water and death play a part. Flowers, those that fall is a two-channel video work that can be shown in different ways on two screens or as two projections side by side.
