    Line Bergseth, Flowers and weeds, 2000

    The installation Light Field comprises two hundred white, fragrant lilies, illuminated as if by magic each in its own glass bottle. On the walls around hang some fifty watercolour paintings. Ever since her years as a student at the Oslo art academy Line Bergseth has included flowers, plants and plant life as subjects in her art. At a first glance her paintings can seem to resemble botanical illustrations, but a closer look reveals that every picture is a portrait of a unique and individual plant which – each on its own terms – has been formed by the place, the time and the climate in which it has grown.
