FILIPPUCCI - THE HISTORY OF FLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM

My Imaginary Career

I started a series of imaginary promotional outdoor displays on Instagram for an imaginary exhibition at an imaginary venue.  One imagines the imaginary venue could be The New York Botanical Gardens but one is free to imagine. The “History of Flowers” is about the necessity of compassion at a time when there is too much History about War.

Jehanne May, 1431

Before they burned her alive at 19, her head was shaved. Starved, weak, Joan of Arc died knowing that she had done the work she was intended to do. We do not know what she looked like (no portraits exist) but that is less important than perpetuating her legacy. For me she is an obsession no different than Yayoi Kusama polka dots or a Cezanne apple or another row of bottles by the artist Antonio Morandi.

FILIPPUCCI - Joan of Arc 1431

Jehanne August, 2018

Joan is still with us. Rebelling against abuse, Afghan women see signs of change. Suffering under the constraints of tribalism, poverty, and war, women in many countries are starting to fight for a just life.
