A site-specific commission for GOMA by Fallen Fruit
Fallen Fruit is a Los Angeles-based artist collective originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Fallen Fruit has collaborated on fruit and art-related projects around the world for more than 10 years.
By always working with fruit as a material or media, the catalogue of projects and works reimagine public interactions with the margins of urban space, systems of community and narrative real-time experience. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work. Fallen Fruit's visual work includes an ongoing series of narrative photographs, wallpapers, everyday objects and video works that explore the social and political implications of our relationship to fruit and world around us. Fallen Fruit uses fruit as a common denominator to change the way you see the world.
The installation Fallen Fruit of Brisbane: Pineapple Express! created by David and Austin is part of 'Harvest: Art, Film + Food' at GOMA from 28 June to 21 September 2014.
