Say It With Flowers

For the inaugural exhibition of International Waters, Nate Heiges presents a series of paintings and sculptures made using materials found predominantly on the anti-pastoral streets of Bushwick and the East Williamsburg Industrial Park. Say it with Flowers, a phrase taken from the wrapping paper of bodega bouquets, serves as a metaphor for both the ubiquity and the necessity of language as well as its all-too-common suppression and subversion. Heiges manipulates vernacular objects into a détourned bricolage, by turns funny and sad, of the surrounding landscape.

No flowers were harmed in the making of this exhibition
