This series was made for the Oskár Čepan Awards 2011 finalists’ exhibition.

There is a ship called Europe and on it, there are four window boxes with different plants growing in them.

They reminded me of Europe, the continent, and the countries in it. When it comes to the visuals, they

remind me of a map. Every country has a different color, different shape. Capturing these pots over the

course of time allows me to follow how the different plants/countries fare with each other in their fellowship.

How they gradually bloom, expand and oppress the neighbouring plants and how they fade and wither.

Europe, the ship, still operates and the plants live on, forced into four small window boxes.
