краденые цветы лучше растут

Installation, Moscow/RU, 2015

краденые цветы лучше растут is an installation composed of 2,500 flowers. It refers to the Russian/Soviet tradition to create large-format flowerbeds in urban public space. The Russian proverb “краденые цветы лучше растут” (English: “Stolen flowers grow better”) can be read as both – an invitation to think about a possible theft as well as a subtle comment on the unequal accumulation of wealth since the collapse of the USSR.
