Flowered Two Circles was originally installed in the front yard of my home in Atlanta on Mother’s Day weekend in 2020. The work was dedicated to all mothers (and women) who were loving and hard-working for their family and community. Also, the installation paid homage to people who have been working in front line at this unprecedented moment. The two, yellow and pink neon circles symbolize the two different energies. While these two energies are united, we can create a positive energy together.
This first installation was curated by Ginger Wolfe-Suarez, and the video presented here is created from my time-lapsed photo of the installation process.
Flowered Two Circles is currently on view for an exhibition ‘She Is Here’ ( curated by Kristen Cahill & Daricia Mia DeMarr) at the Atlanta Contemporary until January 2021. Each, new flower arrangement has been conducted at the beginning of every month during the six-month-long show period. Iterating flower arrangement expresses sustaining, circulating and celebrating our life even in these difficult moments.
