Emerging artist Abigail Giblin
explores attitudes towards death
in contemporary western society
through floral installation.
noun [origin: French, fem. of immortal]
1. any of various plants that retain their colour when dried. Also called: everlasting flower.
Immortelle is part of an ongoing investigation into the relationship between flowers and death within western society. Treated as a taboo topic, there are few conversations about death and limited rituals for mourning. Immortelle explores the cultural desire to restrain and deny natural decay, combined with the transience and fragility of flowers.
