Artist Maria Degrève makes an installation in the windows of Copyright Ghent


For the Vitrines d’Amour exhibition circuit, Maria Degrève created two impressive installations in the windows of Copyright Ghent. In one shop window she placed the self-portrait ‘Kiss’ on a high pedestal and shows herself as a sad Pierrot covered with kisses. In the other shop window she placed ‘Blackened Sun Flowers’, a vase with flowers made of real women’s hair and a mourning bow. This work has many layers and refers not only to Van Gogh’s painting with the vase and sunflowers, but also to the sad fact that women in Iran today can be spit on, whipped and even killed if they have the courage to show their hair.
