The artists in this exhibition answer the question of the exhibition title with a resounding “YES!”. They show that the flower as a symbol can seduce, comfort, heal, adorn and distract, and find common ground in feminist affinities, queer desires and ecological solidarity. But flowers can also represent a form of oppression and censorship, a secret language, a wink and a punch all in one.

‘Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers’ is an exhibition diptych with the Centraal Museum (Laurie Cluitmans and Eva Burgering) where ‘The Botanical Revolution’ is being shown simultaneously.

An extensive contextual program has been developed around the exhibitions at both locations.

With special thanks to Camille Henrot, after whose work this exhibition is titled.

The festive opening of ‘Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers?’* is Thursday, September 9th from 8 pm to 10 pm at Nest.
