Midsummer Night, Kupa?a Night, Sobótka, St John's Night and many more different names for that one special night.

According to Slavic mythology, the fern flower is magic. Unique and hard to find, the flower blooms only for a fragment of the night on the eve of the Summer solstice. It is believed that the finder of the fern flower will become wealthy and happy.

On the Midsummer Night / Kupa?a night, everything is possible.
Work 'SEEKING THE FERN FLOWER' is part of a ‘Midsummer Night' series, inspired by unified traditions found among the diversity of European cultures.
