Flowers Know No Borders
When I worked in Istanbul, I did a participative performance to celebrate the Day of Hungarian Culture. I drew the contour of traditional matyó flowers onto a huge gallery-window in Istiklal street, and invited passers-by to colour them in. In the region, where I took the flowers from, every village used to have a draftswoman, who pre-drew motives. She did not do the needlework, but drew the motives to be embroidered. Through this performance, I became a contemporary draftswoman, who prepared the motif, to mix people of different cultures.
