Princess for one day!

The idea is based on the permanent wish of girls of a certain age to draw princesses, to perform princesses, to become a princess. Our silver castle functions as a dressing room, where dozens of crinolines, crowns, high-heeled shoes of any size are prepared inside for girls willing to try them. The "ready" princess appears on the stage to be admired (or mocked?) by the male audience. The installation includes lots of links to fairy tales involving princesses 
(a crystal shoe, a red apple, a spindle etc.), hundreds of pink roses, gold and silver, jewellery and mirrors, pink curtains and a huge green dragon.
