A water lily came in 1875 from Amazonas, Brazil, to the botanical garden at Tøyen in Oslo, Norway. At Tøyen we also meet Edel, an olderly woman with dementia interested in family history. In the book Victoria Regia this two tales are woven together, they get close, drive apart and get closer again. The texts meet the images, a world of images built around the water lily and it’s many expressions, from the seductive to the dark chaos.
