These photographs represent the performance installation of Mirre Van Dalen’s artwork which was part 2 of Zwarte Bloem, a project she first started years ago. In the initial artwork, Mirre wore a calico toile of a wedding dress while she dipped coloured flowers into black paint. The flowers represented the lives of people with mental health issues and the black paint, the difficulties they have experienced. In this second part, Mirre once again wore the toile and dipped the black flowers in white paint - bringing hope to broken lives.
