400 yellow pained bananas, cinder blocks
400 yellow-painted bananas sit as sculptures around the exhibition space. The act of painting the banana yellow reflects the masked perception of mass consumption and production. Bananas are a tropical fruit that has become part of daily nutrition worldwide, turning this ‘exotic’ fruit into the western norm. The viewers were invited to take bananas from the piles and dispose of the peals as they wished. At the end of the night most of the viewers hands were tainted in yellow paint and the exhibition floor was covered in banana peels.
