About the artwork

As though conducting a scientific experiment, Mina Teslaru subverts plant forms from their initial environment to create a new subjectivity. She arranges the flowers that she photographs against a neutral background, evoking the dissection tables of laboratories. Each flower is then deconstructed as though the artist wanted to remove the delicate petals one by one, take out the pistils, and cut up the leaves and stems that compose it. By photographing them frontally, under an extremely cold light, she succeeds in conferring breathtaking beauty to these natural subjects. The plants are sufficiently translucent for the light to infiltrate their contours and reveal new forms. With these still lifes evoking children's drawings, Mina Teslaru wishes to give her creations a pictorial, stylised effect, rather than producing purely figurative photographs.
