Stilleben – an exhibition consisting of flowers at the project space 0047 in Berlin during ten days of November 2005.

Rakett invited 23 artists to contribute with a story of a flower bouquet once received or given away, and also the description of the composition of flowers, plants or objects. This was the basis upon which Rakett reconstructed the flower bouquets, presenting them with their respective accompanying stories. The contributions ranged from highly personal experiences of loss of a close person to conceptual or more formal approaches to the given task.
