By means of still life photographs of flower bouquets, Hilit Kadouri presents different aspects of blindness. The partial physiological visual impairment of the artists brought her to inquire upon the excess of light, together with its absence; it is expressed in her different photographic methods, which deal with the gap between the presentation of an image and its history. By negating the natural characteristics of the flowers, and transforming them into household ornaments, by means of a series of violent actions we ‘perform’ on them, such as spraying, painting, weaving or pasting, the objects turn into myths. This is how the artist turns blindness into a narrative where absence is multiplied, as it becomes a product for consumption, and the flowers are sterilized out of consciousness.
