sketch of Hercule Poirot's windowsill in his hypothetical Swedish apartment. a fanatic of 'order and method', forever straightening curios on mantlepieces, he would definitely arrange his pot plants in height order. working on a proposal for my first show in sweden and the relationship between pot plants and criminal activity still preys on my mind.
on second thoughts, perhaps Poirot would have topiary bushes or succulents on his windowsills instead of the usual leafy fare. or plastic ones to avoid all possibility of the mess of nature.
