an accidental feminism, in the Botanical Garden, Vienna

I made this miniature installation “Precarious, delicate feminism – are you floating or drowning?” at the Botanical Garden in Vienna, in the Nymphoides Peltata – Heimische Seekanne (Fringed Water-Lily) Pond this evening around 6pm. By some random synchronicity, an exhibition opened a few minutes later, coincidentally 10 metres away from my installation, with Lisa Kuglitsch’s meditative compos(t)ing, a performance act which focussed on the simultaneity and reciprocity of death and life, where she re-heaped a pile of compost, resulting in the dirty weathering of her dress.
