About Song Flowers
Jack Davison's Song Flowers is a new body of work; made in collaboration with Marni. His work is renowned, above all, for its dexterity, soulfulness and also human spirit. The Miao are one of the oldest ethnic groups in China and are globally renowned for their intricately handmade clothing and patterns, as well as imaginative local festivals and myths. As a key inspiration for Marni, Davison was invited by Francesco Risso to spend time in the pace of life and creativity of these rural communities. Jack photographed everything from weavers to children, animals, cities and nature. The lush tones of Davison’s work creates an interconnectivity between landscape and development, or between tradition and modernity. Davison’s images preoccupy themselves with the backdrops, workshops, faces and hands that shape Miao culture. Song Flowers eschews the intricate and grandiose to look at the intimate and everyday.
