See: Harvest at GoMA

Last weekend I trekked it over to my happy place aka the Gallery of Modern Art. Their latest showcase exhibition ‘Harvest’ is a celebration of food in art. An art exhibition focusing on food? It’s like these guys can see into my mind (and stomach). The collection features pieces from GoMA’s extensive collection as well as major new acquisitions. I did recognise a few pieces from past exhibitions like Xu Zhen’s ShanghART Supermarket installation which, by coincidence, is another manifestation of one of my happy places – Asian supermarkets. My favourite pieces included Shirana Shahbazi’s Still life: Coconut and other things and the absolutely bonkers Pineapple Express! display by Fallen Fruit that featured an assortment of pineapple-y items from local contributors. The exhibition is free and runs until September 21.

    Looks pretty fun indeed, what a burst of colour. The Pineapple Express does indeed look nutsy.

    • And this is just a snippet! It was a whole wall full of pineapples. Not all items were kitschy but set up like this, it was nuts.

    I love love Tomas Saraceno's work! I saw a massive installation of his in Berlin a few years ago and recognised his spheres immediately.
