Marcin Rusak is fascinated by flowers. Having descended from a long line of flower growers in his native Poland, the blooms are in his blood. Yet Rusak, now based in London since coming here to study at the Royal College of Art, isn’t interested in growing flowers: it’s their story that obsesses him. Working with unwanted waste flowers collected from markets and florists, Rusak creates beautiful pieces that explore the nature of consumption, mortality and value. His first solo exhibition, which builds on his work with flowers that began during his final year at the RCA, opens at Contemporary Applied Arts this summer.
