The series Majs/ Corn exposes one of the world’s most widespread crops in the form of „Stilleben“ / still life.

The motif is not like in the 1600 Stilleben lavishly abundant meals or big bouquets of rare and expensive flowers, but portrays normal corn.

They are beautiful, sensual and almost erotic in the way they pose and expose themselves. But there is something fishy going on behind the scenes. They look like a mutated or gene-manipulated version of the regular corn as we know it. And they almost seem threatening like an extinct dinosaur or a dragon from a fairy tale.

The series was exhibited at Charlottenborgs Forårsudstilling / Charlottenborg’s Spring exhibition 2014.
