The plants switch phases of beauty with other quiescent and inconspicuous. In the winter break, we see them as dead. The work focuses on this period of long sleep and on what plants may be able to dream. The plants dream of what they don’t have more or less than us. These dreams have the butterflies as leading characters; in my view, they represent more than any other living things awakening, heat, sun, spring. The symbol of transformation and rebirth is also at psychic level; their inconsistency embodies the ephemeral and the resurrection.
