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

The Endless Orchard events will include a public fruit tree adoption at the Feldheym Library, and a “plant the perimeter” event at the Garcia Center for the Arts. What if instead of going to the grocery store for an apple, you just walked outside your door? Fallen Fruit helps the community to create a real living fruit orchard planted by the public, for the public – a movement of citizens transforming their own neighborhoods. Neighbors adopt fruit trees and plant them next to the sidewalk to share with the community.  Participants sign an adoption form, agreeing to care for and share the fruit tree. Trees are mapped on the San Bernardino Endless Orchard Map- where anyone can map, plant and share fruit. The anchor of this map will be 12 trees planted on the grounds of the Garcia Center for the Arts.

The first “Fallen Fruit San Bernardino!” events took place in partnership with the San Bernardino County Museum. The museum hosted an art exhibition “Life in the Cracks,” a zine workshop and “Orange You Glad I didn’t Say Banana?” in which participants drew their self-portrait on an orange in exchange for a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. Future “Fallen Fruit San Bernardino!” events are being planned in Victorville and Crestline. Details will be announced as dates and times are confirmed.  For more information please visit http://www.artsconnectionnetwork.org

 Arts Connection, The Arts Council of San Bernardino County, was awarded a California Arts Council Artists Activating Communities grant to bring a project from artist collective, Fallen Fruit to life in San Bernardino. Additional funds for programming were awarded by the San Bernardino Fine Arts Commission and Southern California Gas Company.

Fallen Fruit of San Bernardino!

Made possible through grant funding from the California Arts Council, The City of San Bernardino Fine Arts Commission, and SoCalGas.

“Fallen Fruit San Bernardino!” will include a series of events in different regions of the county. Our first public participatory event will be at the San Bernardino County Museum on March 10th. Celebrate the “Festival of Life in the Cracks” day by adopting a fruit tree, drawing a self portrait on an orange, or taking part in our collective zine project!

The Endless Orchard is coming to San Bernardino!
Collaborate with us by adopting a fruit tree to share with neighbors!

You can apply to adopt a tree if:
• You have a home, business, or community center in San Bernardino. Preference will be given to our neighbors in the Inland Empire basin.
• 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.

Shown above is Fallen Fruit’s “Lemonade Stand.”  Fallen Fruit San Bernardino, will feature a new iteration, “Orange You Glad You Didn’t Say Banana?”  

ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDN’T SAY BANANA
In exchange for drawing a self-portrait onto a hand-picked orange from the orchard on the property, each participant receives a glass of organic orange juice (also picked from the historic orchards). Collectively the orange self- portraits create a group portrait of everyone who joins us! Hand-drawn expressions illustrate joy and innocence as well as wisdom and age. During the project we will take portraits of participants along with their self-portraits and record stories about neighborhood and families of San Bernardino on the theme of … “Orange you glad…”

Fallen Fruit was originally conceived by David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young. Since 2013, David and Austin have continued the collaborative work.
