Painting flowers is the curse of the avant-​garde. The exhibition Ice Saints relates an extreme situation of this sort, and imagines that when we are gone, only flowers will remain. Ful­fil­ling the long-​held dream of a garden in the gal­lery, we invite visitors to a meadow where wild­flowers mingle with weeds, day with night, art with the memory of art. Plants—painted, photographed, or freely sprouting from worn-​out shoes—are accom­panied here by images from political history. Plants are a metaphor for pas­sing time, migration and uprooting, and an omen of inevitable change and withering.
