FRUIT is one of the rare things in this world that is a subject and an object at the same time. Fruit is also personal, emotional, and relatable to most every person on this planet. Fruit is always political but these cultural histories are often left behind and replaced by aesthetics; color, taste, scent and memory.

 

For this project, the artists investigate qualities of aesthetics. “We are curious about meaning and memory. About how familiar objects move around the world. About how the origin story, the cultural politics, the geographical histories of something can become displaced and often are replaced by superficiality or aesthetics. In the 21st century, we wonder, what is it that makes something beautiful? or sublime? Is it possible to reframe these qualities and meanings that shift through time and space? And will beauty persist? ” 

The installation is composed of multiple patterns created from hundreds of original photographs the artists have created for different cities in the world selected from recent commissioned exhibition projects listed below. In this expression of recent projects about geographical histories, the artists are exploring how meaning shifts through time and space and how beauty in the everyday is celebrated around the world. 

The installation artwork is unified with a gradient background of merging color fields moving through the visual spectrum. Details in the artwork are universal — Bananas and birds are comfortable and welcoming alongside flowers and fig trees that the artists discovered and photographed along plazas, sidewalks and alleys nearby ancient roman monuments. Familiar domestic objects and repurposed found furniture invite viewers and guests to take a few minutes to relax and merge with the installation.

The artists have recontextualized excerpts from selected recent artworks created for Manifesta 12 biennale for Palermo, Italy 2018, the V&A Museum in London, England 2019 and Kunsthall 3.14 in Bergen, Norway 2019. Additional objects and research, includes selected works from commissioned projects “The Practices of Everyday Life” created for 21c Museum Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky, “Block After Block” for the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio, and “Paradise” for the Portland Art Museum, among others. 

Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.

PRESS RELEASE: 

Inaugural Opening: Cohen Design Gallery at Pacific Design Center

 

SUPERSHOW

Fallen Fruit, David Burns and Austin Young

 

Reception: Thursday, September 26, 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Cohen Design Gallery at Pacific Design Center is pleased to announce the opening of its exhibition space located in the former MOCA building on the San Vicente side of the Pacific Design Center. Programming will engage artists, guest curators, organizations and leading academic institutions to draw upon the collective intelligence and creativity of California’s vast design culture as well as international design invention and innovation. The gallery’s aim is to explore design as an extension of artistic practice, advancing art and design practice, architecture and the decorative arts.

 

In collaboration with Milan-based curator Helen Varola and art advisor Jeffrey Deitch, programming comprises three exhibits per year and includes a summer student MFA exhibition curated by noted design dealer Craig Appelbaum (named among Art + Auction’s Power 100 of 2015).

 

The gallery’s inaugural exhibition, SUPERSHOW, features the work of Los Angeles-based artists Fallen Fruit (David Allen Burns and Austin Young) and opens Thursday, September 26 with a reception from 5:00 – 10:00 pm with a special performance by Fallen Fruit, “Fruit Cocktail”. The exhibition will run through December.

 

SUPERSHOW explores participatory design practice, reflecting upon a broader, controversial global environmental movement involving food production. As food is inextricably bound to identity, small-scale self sufficient organic farming is becoming a means for cultural rediscovery, invigorating the politics of both left and right and going far beyond community gardening.

Using the subject of fruit as a cultural object to investigate the design of public space and collective experience, Fallen Fruit taps into urban agriculture, a growing global force highlighted recently in London at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s “FOOD: Bigger Than the Plate,” an exhibition featuring artwork by Fallen Fruit. 

SUPERSHOW consists of Fallen Fruit’s intensive research and materials from recently commissioned artworks with a two-part exhibition, one in which a new immersive installation is specially created for the gallery and second, a survey from selected recent projects that builds upon the visual vocabulary and material palettes from recent projects. 

The first part of the exhibition consists of new wallpaper covering the walls and ceiling and custom furniture to create an immersive installation artwork . Other works include, wall coverings, textiles, plates, framed artworks, and one-of-a-kind refinished vintage furniture pieces.

 

Another component of the exhibition presents recent work from Fallen Fruit’s installations to include Teatro del Sole created for Manifesta 12 at Palazzo Butera, Palermo, selections from EMPIRE created for Newcomb Art Museum, New Orleans, and The Practices of Everyday Life commissioned by 21c Museum Hotel, Louisville.

 

Participatory projects will be programmed during the run of the exhibition and will be open to everyone of all ages. Public Participatory Projects include a Public Fruit Tree Adoption where residents of Los Angeles are invited to expand Fallen Fruit’s Endless Orchard project awarded by Creative Capital (event dates to be announced).

 

Fallen Fruit has been recently featured in 15 Los Angeles Artists to Watch, ARTnews (Cover);  Artforum  (Critic’s Pick), “Tasty and Subversive Too”, The New York Times,  Conde Nast Traveler “18 -best shows in London”,  “Food Matters” The New York Times. LA Confidential (Cover and Feature), “How Fallen Fruit is Changing the Art World & Life in LA.” Their work has been featured in The Idea of the West by Doug Aitken and numerous other publications The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan, Come Together: The Rise of Cooperative Art and Design by Francesco Spampinato (Princeton Architectural Press) as well as numerous broadcast radio, TV, video and blog venues.

 

Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived in 2004 by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David Burns and Austin Young have continued the collaborative work.

AUSTIN YOUNG BIO

Austin young is from Reno, Nevada and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. The foundation of his career is from studying at Parsons in Paris. Early in his career, Austin transferred his interests from traditional portrait painting towards a long celebrated career in portrait photography. In many ways, Austin is more accurately described as an image-maker: his projects illustrate the sublime qualities of character that make celebrated people unique. Based on a nuanced visual language of pop-culture iconography, his trademark style and techniques have captured a broad palette of musicians, artists and celebrities including Debbie Harry, Leigh Bowery and Margaret Cho, among others. In multiple bodies of work, Austin confuses personality and identity issues in confrontational and unapologetic image making about people who often split gender roles, stereotypical constraints and socially-constructed identities.  austinyoung.com and austinyoungforever on instagram

Fallen Fruit of Tulum

HUERTO SIN FIN / THE ENDLESS ORCHARD

by Fallen Fruit, David Allen Burns and Austin Young

 

Fallen Fruit was in residency at AKI AORA in Tulum, Mexico February 18th through March 10, 2019

For  AKI AORA  2019, Fallen Fruit continued their exploration for the meaning of place and  community with support from Azulik Uh May, Fallen Fruit extended their ‘Endless Orchard’ or ‘Huerto Sin Fin;’ fruit trees that are planted in the public right of way, to be shared by everyone and connecting neighborhoods across communities. The artists did their research focusing on and the area called Tulum town and the village of Francisco Uh May. They met with local residents, business owners, and community leaders to learn about local histories and cultural rituals.  The artists went door to door inviting neighbors to participate in the project by adopting and caring for fruit trees to share with their community. Over thirty five fruit trees were planted in public spaces and adopted by local residents in a constellation linking Tulum town with Francisco Uh May. The Mayan language, which is under threat of extinction, was a vital component in the accessibility of the project, with a strong Mayan community still present in the region. A hand crafted wood sign placed at each fruit tree explains how to share the tree’s resources and care for it – both in Spanish and Mayan.

video still – Huerto Sin Fin, by David Burns and Austin Young, Fallen Fruit

The artist’s created a hand drawn map of all existing fruit trees in the area including the newly planted fruit trees to activate this shared resource for the community. The artists appropriated a long standing strategy of local business in the area and hired a local work truck to drive around the area with a recorded message publicizing the project from a megaphone on top of the car. This driving procession as public intervention invited local community members and business owners of Tulum town and Francisco Uh May to share their fruits. The message was recorded in Spanish and Mayan. Everyone was encouraged to plant the trees and participants signed adoption forms agreeing to help care for the trees and share the fruit when ripe. The artists conducted a workshop with a local after school program called La Esquina Foundation. The youth created plastic spirit bug catchers from recycled plastic bottles to protect the trees and prevent potential diseases for the new fruit trees, teaching the children about recycling and safeguarding the fruitful trees.

As part of the fruit planting and research process, David and Austin with a support team from AKI AORA and IK LAB  created a new film work, ‘HUERTO SIN FIN’ which tells the story of this collaboration and focuses on the alarmingly present advent of cultural tourism in the area threatening this natural paradise, the currency used to attract tourists in the first place.

 

Handmade signs written in Spanish and Maya for as instructions for when to harvest and how to care for each tree:

The Endless Orchard

A public participatory project for everyone to share.

This fruit tree is a part of the Endless Orchard.

The fruit is for everyone, including you.

When ripe, please taste the fruit and share it with others.

Take only what you need.

Say “hi” to strangers.

Take a friend.

Go by foot.

This is a orange tree.

Oranges are ripe in May.

Created by the artists of Fallen Fruit

With AKI AORA and Azulik.

The Endless Orchard at Manual Arts High School!

Fallen Fruit expands the Endless Orchard to South Central L.A.

Fallen  Fruit Tree Adoption!  

Help us bring free fruit to you, and your neighbors! Collaborate with us! Come Help us plant!

Manual Arts High School

9-12 Saturday February 24th, 2018

4131 S Vermont Ave, Los Angeles CA 90037

The Endless Orchard is coming to Manual Arts High School in South Central! Collaborate with us by adopting a fruit tree to share with neighbors!  Let’s make fresh fruit accessible to everyone! It’s free to participate.

You can apply to adopt a tree if:
• You have a home, business, or community center in South Central. Preference will be given to our neighbors who are near Manual Arts High School.
• The tree will be accessible to neighbors and passersby – placed in the front of your yard right next to the sidewalk.
• You agree to water and care for the tree for the first three years.
• You’re willing to share the bounty! Your tree will be part of the Endless Orchard map, which shares the locations of public fruit trees throughout the city.  

 

To apply for a tree, contact Bari at Manual Arts High School: bariapplebaum@gmail.com

Contact David and Austin at info @ fallenfruit.org with any questions or to learn more. 

 

PLANT THE PERIMETER

Our city is filled with useless ornamental landscaping and more cement than grass. What if we replaced all these little shrubs with fruit trees?   What if instead of driving to a grocery store for a peach you just walked outside your door? The peach on the street has never been sprayed or dusted or fertilized. The peach from the store was sprayed, dusted, fertilized and has a round little sticker you can’t eat. It traveled 200 or 2,000 miles to meet you. Plant the city, share with your neighbors and change the texture (and flavor) of your neighborhood. You have nothing to lose buy your shrubs!

Plant fruit trees on the perimeter of your property, on the sidewalks, streets and back alleys! The fruit trees that are easiest to care for are semi-dwarfs (easy to pick). Those that require less water are figs, loquats, avocados, pomegranates and some citrus. Dig a hole twice as big as the roots and soak it before planting by filling it with water. After the water has drained, mix half of the dirty with 50% soil amendment. Plant fruit trees in the fall, winter or spring and be ready to care for them (water!!) for the first two years at least.

Give things away! The only real gifts are those without any expectation of return. Share fruit with all your neighbors, friends and strangers. Put signs up inviting people to sample. Change your neighborhood into an inhabited garden on the Endless Orchard. Share your fruit. Change the world!

Help our Kickstarter so we can plant 300 fruit trees in New Orleans.

We are bringing our Creative Capital project to New Orleans!

Pelican Bomb, A Studio in the Woods, and Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University present “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans,” a citywide suite of public projects with internationally acclaimed artists Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young). This multi-site presentation continues Fallen Fruit’s exploration of the ways people experience public space. As one component, Fallen Fruit will plant 300 fruit trees throughout New Orleans in 2018—in honor of the city’s tricentennial—for residents to share, and you can help by supporting our Kickstarter campaign until November 21. The Kickstarter helps us meet our goal of providing matching funds to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. If you are interested in taking part in this, but don’t live in New Orleans then you might want to get yourself a hotel (such as the InterContinental New Orleans hotel), as this way you have a place to stay and can join in with planting 300 fruit trees.

About Fallen Fruit’s Endless Orchard
Fallen Fruit started in 2004 in Los Angeles with the creative mapping of locations of fruit growing on or over public property, and since then the artists have worked in over 30 cities around the world. In January, they will work in partnership with the Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development and the City of New Orleans Department of Parks and Parkways to plant networks of publicly accessible fruit trees in two New Orleans neighborhoods: along the Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Triangle in the Lower 9th Ward and in Pontchartrain Park. Residents and community groups in both neighborhoods can also participate by planting trees along sidewalks in front of their homes, churches, and businesses to provide a much needed resource—fresh, healthy food—to their friends, neighbors, and anybody passing by. And the artists will host a citywide tree adoption day, open to all, at Newcomb Art Museum on Tulane University’s campus. All of the planted fruit trees will join Fallen Fruit’s Endless Orchard, a massive, living public art and digital mapping project. Fallen Fruit is an art collaboration originally conceived by David Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young. Since 2013, Burns and Young have continued the collaborative work. “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” was initiated by Pelican Bomb in 2015.

Why New Orleans?
In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit and the federal levees failed, flooding and wind destroyed the tree canopy along the Bayou Bienvenue Wetland Triangle. Further ecological shifts, including salt-water intrusion, have also led to tree loss in the area, and residents of the Lower 9th Ward have verified that most of the neighborhood fruit trees have been destroyed.

Fruit is a symbol of generosity across cultures. In Fallen Fruit’s work, fruit offers a platform for sharing, storytelling, and collective understanding. Studies have shown that fruit trees have further positive impacts: catching rainwater and removing pollutants from the soil and air; supporting the ecosystem of bees, birds, and wildlife; promoting well-being and food security; increasing property values; and creating more beautiful and walkable streets. Researchers have even linked an increased tree canopy to decreased crime rates.

To help plant fruit trees across New Orleans, donate to Fallen Fruit’s Kickstarter campaign before it ends on Tuesday, November 21. We have four weeks to meet our fundraising goal of $20,000, and we can’t do it without you. Those looking to raise funds for their own projects, businesses or personal uses may want to consider applying for a loan. For Kickstarter rewards, the artists have designed a selection of exclusive items ranging from tote bags and fruit jam to limited-edition prints and experiences, including the opportunity to dedicate a fruit tree in your name or in honor of a loved one.

That’s Not All…
Alongside the planting of 300 fruit trees in New Orleans, Fallen Fruit will work with local residents to create fun and enriching public participatory programs that celebrate New Orleans’ social histories, neighborhood stories, and the value of generosity and collective action. These include a pickle party where residents gather to make delicious pickles; a collectively made magazine; a sno-ball portrait studio; and more.

And in April, Fallen Fruit will open an exhibition at Newcomb Art Museum bringing together objects from Tulane University’s special collections to further examine the ways the story of New Orleans is told. Recent exhibitions and projects include commissioned works by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; the Athens Biennale; the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha; the Portland Art Museum; and the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus.

Imagine a New Orleans where everyone can walk out of their front doors to enjoy freshly picked pieces of fruit. Donate now on Kickstarter to support “Fallen Fruit of New Orleans” before Tuesday, November 21.

ENDLESS ORCHARD launches EARTH DAY

EARTH DAY: FALLEN FRUIT LAUNCHES THEIR WORLDWIDE PUBLIC ARTWORK,

ENDLESS ORCHARD”

April 22nd 2017/Los Angeles State Historic Park

(Los Angeles) On Earth Day (April 22, 2015) art collective FALLEN FRUIT (David Burns & Austin Young) launch the largest public artwork in the world, “Endless Orchard.”

The ENDLESS ORCHARD is a sustainable, edible, living artwork, fruit trees planted, cared for, and mapped by the public for everyone to share. Members of the public are invited to co-create ENDLESS ORCHARD by mapping existing public fruit trees or planting new ones in front of homes, schools, churches, or businesses. These fruit trees are planted along sidewalks and interstitial urban spaces, allowing us to explore and enjoy our cities in a new way. “The project is co-created by everyone who participates,” Together, we will make the largest and most generous collaborative public artwork in the world. Endless Orchard is an invitation to share and create more goodwill in our neighborhoods, cities, and planet.

ENDLESS ORCHARD is a social mapping platform that exists simultaneously in the digital and real world.  Code Rodeo has partnered with Fallen Fruit to design and develop the Endless Orchard website (endlessorchard.com) and mobile app which will be free to use and download. Anyone anywhere with access to a computer or smartphone can plant a fruit tree in front along the margins of public space of their property and map it on the  Endless Orchard . With everyone who participates, the orchard grows larger and is shared with more people.  Participants can share their backyard fruit and map trees that exist in public space in their neighborhoods.  Fruit trees can be planted in collaboration with cities in public spaces and parks. Street side plantings delineate trails that connect neighborhoods- including urban food deserts to create  access to fresh healthy fruit.

Fruit is a resource that could be commonly shared.    “Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could just walk outside your door and grab an apple instead of going to the grocery store,” said Burns.  “Over time the trees will become well-picked and openly used by residents and passersby – a living symbol of sharing, and a communal public resource.” We can make our cities like community gardens.” says Young.

“In a real sense, it is the app itself which constitutes the claim of being the world’s largest public artwork. It incorporates Google Maps, user profiles, connections to kindred local groups, and media sharing, but pointedly also includes free flexible templates and suggested language for the use of any individual or group looking into replicating the action in their own community, including how to pursue permits for use of their own public spaces.” – says art critic, Shana Nys Drambot

Operating at the margins of public and private space, and the boundaries of social media and public participation,  Fallen Fruit has planted fruit trees with local community groups, schools and the general public in Riverside, Portland, Philadelphia, Buffalo, NYC, Omaha, Madrid, Puerto Vallarta, Columbus, , and along streets and parks in Los Angeles. ENDLESS ORCHARD will be anchored by  Fallen Fruit’s artwork, the “MONUMENT TO SHARING.”  The monument will be unveiled (April 22nd 2017) at the opening of the Los Angeles State Historic Park. Operated by California State Parks in Downtown LA, the area was once at the epicenter of California fruit growing.

Endless Orchard GOALS:

  • To allow for a simple action to make a difference in the world, like planting or mapping just one fruit tree.
  • To use the margins of public and private space to create a public resource of fresh fruit for everyone to share or a treasure map to explore.
  • To make neighborhoods more beautiful and friendlier and to make parks more inviting and responsive to public needs.
  • To foster collaboration among community members and organizations and the world.
  • To inspire dialogue by designing creative and unique fruit inspired installations.
  • To encourage everyone to give back to their city and community.

The Endless Orchard: phase one- planting day!

PHASE 1:   We’ve planted tons of fruit trees in the neighborhood surrounding Los Angeles State Historic Park in Downtown LA!  In the weeks leading up to this Phase of The Endless Orchard, we went door to door in the community to meet with residents, businesses, schools and churches and we found stewards for the new public fruit trees. These same neighbors came to help us plant the trees in front of their properties along sidewalks and agreed to take care of the trees and share fruit with the everyone.  

Join us for The Endless Orchard PHASE 2!  We’ll be planting more trees, creating our Monument to Sharing, and launching our mobile app where anyone can plant, map and share their fruit!  

Love,

David and Austin

ABOUT PARK TO PLAYA
The Park to Playa Trail will be a 13 mile trail network connecting the Baldwin Hills Parklands to the Pacific Ocean. Efforts are underway to create a seamless pedestrian and bike connection starting with the Stocker Corridor on the east, connecting to Ruben Ingold Park, Norman O. Houston Park, Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, and the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, among other destinations. The Stocker Corridor segment of the project will include an Urban Fruit Trailhead that will offer seasonal public fruit. Construction is expected to begin on this segment of the trail in February.

Urban Fruit Trails- Riverside Art Museum

Riverside Art Museum (RAM) is pleased to announce an exciting new Riverside Art Make public participatory project! RAM is bringing Los Angeles–based, internationally acclaimed art collaborative Fallen Fruit (David Allen Burns and Austin Young) back to Riverside! Fallen Fruit produces community-based projects that use fruit as a medium to explore social engagement. Last fall, Fallen Fruit went to the Eastside for the Riverside Art Make, where they presented their “Lemonade Stand.” In exchange for drawing a self-portrait onto a lemon, each participant received a glass of organic lemonade. See the community’s portraits by Fallen Fruit HERE:

On Saturday, February 21 from 12-3pm at Lincoln Park in Eastside, Fallen Fruit will work with RAM and residents to install Riverside’s first “Urban Fruit Trail.” Come help us plant and grow an Urban Fruit Trail!, our public artwork in Riverside! We will plant 12 trees in Lincoln Park and extend the trail throughout the neighborhood with your participation and help. If you (or your neighbor) has a sunny space along a sidewalk and where you can water regularly, contact us at Info@fallenfruit.org and help us create an Urban Fruit Trail. It is free to participate!

Becoming part of the Urban Fruit Trail is easy:

1. You have space along sidewalks and fences on private property – a home, local business or apartment building.
2. The space is sunny and is already being watered or can be watered regularly.
3. You agree to share the fruit tree with neighbors and passersby and be part of the Urban Fruit Trail.

Each recipient signs an agreement promising to care for the tree and share the fruit with others. If where you live has room for more than one fruit tree and you can care for them, let us know! If you don’t have space for a tree — come help us plant fruit trees in the Eastside neighborhood.

Please understand, that these are bare root fruit trees, and must be planted the same day of the event (If possible , we will help you). All of these fruit trees will become part of a network of Urban Fruit Trails and our upcoming public artwork with Creative Capital: Endless Orchard.

Riverside Art Make is supported by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.
