Louise Bourque: 'A reclamation of flowerpower in which images of trees in springtime bloom are subjected to the floriferous ravages of menarcheal substance. The title is based on an expression from my coming of age in French Canada where girls would refer to having their menstrual periods as 'être dans ses fleurs'. As a result of incubation in menstrual blood for several months, the original images on the emulsion undergo violent alterations. The blood preys on the fertilised blossoms and substitutes its own dark beauty.'
