they love me, they love me not 

Durational Performance 90 minutes 
Gallerí Úthverfa / Outvert Art Space, Ísafjörður, Iceland

“He loves me, he loves me not”

A game derived from French origin where a woman sits with flowers in her hand and begins to strip away the petals of each flower, reciting the phrase. 

Through durational performance Zosia engaged in a reimagined telling of “He loves me, he loves me not”. Through dialogue with the Lupinus Nootkatensis (Alaskan Lupine), the performance confronted the duality of the flower's allure and its ecological impact. The ritual created a space for contemplation, weaving together a tapestry of emotional responses and fostering a deeper understanding of our role within the natural ecosystem. She unveiled the delicate dichotomy between admiration and the consequences of neglect, prompting the audience to introspectively contemplate their own relationships and connections with the more-than-human world.
