BANANAS by Sara Greenberger Rafferty at The Kitchen in New York City [food art]
Currently on display at The Kitchen, the performing arts and exhibition space in New York City, is BANANAS, an installation composed of sculpture, silkscreens, and photography by Sara Greenberger Rafferty. The show features two large-scale sculptural works, Panning (Done Eggs) and Panning (Toasting Bread), that use food to explore the micro and macro, the imaginary and the everyday.
Says the press release:
Expanding on past works that drew upon linguistic tropes with food references addressing embarrassment and humiliation — "a pie in the face," for example, the wall work made up of individually-formed fried eggs entitled Panning (Done Eggs) can shift in scale from monumental to miniature to touch on myriad references including a frying pan, Petri dish, star-gazing map, and moonscape, among others. In a companion piece, Panning (Toasting Bread), toast slices of laser-cut MDF frame found imagery and source material on eggs, comedy stars, physical exercice, and more.
BANANAS runs from January 9th - March 7, 2009
