Copying the original caption for this fun piece below - a courageous take on how art can be both fun and valuable at once. The pear’s legs have kept me laughing for a bit!
. ‘The Lulennial II: A Low-Hanging Fruit’, curated by @andrewberardini and @chrissharpdf, opened this weekend at Lulu in Mexico City, featuring works by Amelie von Wulffen, Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa, Jef Geys, Maja Vukoje and many more.
Sharp writes in the exhibition text: “ Fruit, it contends, is no laughing matter. Or at least, not merely a laughing matter. The acme of polyvalence, the significations and implications of fruit, for all its apparent frivolity, spiders out in many directions at once. Politically freighted, highly erotic, queer, vitamin charged, mouldering stuff of memento mori, deceptively simple, and delightfully absurd, as well as weird, just weird, fruit contains multitudes (of seeds– of meaning!).” The exhibition remains on view until 1 April.
