GROETJES FROM SUNNY DAISY
DAISY : ˈdeɪ.zi A Daisy flower does not just bud, blossom and die like most other flowers. It performs a daily routine of “sleeping” at night by closing and “waking” up in the morning by opening again. Because of this unusual trait and whorled appearance of the flower, the daisy was given the Old English name dægeseage, meaning literally “day’s eye.” ‘Groetjes from sunny Daisy’ captures all worlds in one. Inspired by Thelma and Louise and Khouri’s statement about what breaking free might look like, a fantasy that just happened to be funny and gritty and violent and awfully realistic looking. Yet looking forward and around, while women are making all great strides towards equality, it’s still very much a man’s world. So we sent out and present our Daisy, the reincarnation of a domesticated housewife, the epiphany we all love and want to be. It is the great escape, the end of the line. The female gaze and breaking free, all in one. She is gritty, and funny and unseeingly sexy, and her wild ride is damn entertaining. Somebody said: ‘get a life’. So she did. PS: I left him a note.
