A Teenage Room consists in part of over 250 life-size cut outs of flower arrangements (hand made!). In each of the 40 individual arrangements you can find real flowers, fake flowers and different objects relating to childhood and adolescence and the commercialization and packaging of sex as a toy. Penis lollypops, Barbie dolls, make up and other objects melt into a syrupy pastel glittering mess inspired by Kitsch and fantasy. After photographing the flower arrangements separately and printing them out as life-sized images, I cut each arrangement out by using a scalpel, as I wanted to create a scrapbook/sticker-feeling of obsessive collecting – creating the feeling of a bedroom wall, diary or schoolbag covered in layers of references as we start to express ourselves within our spaces more visually. I also wanted to include myself in this project, as it is very personal. Inspired by a film still from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, 1964, I produced a self-portrait, showing my back and my ponytail.
