Public Fruit Theater, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 2010-11
Rather than looking at fruit trees as simply a source of food, Public Fruit Theater examines the tree as a durational performance. Viewers complete the story through observation, witnessing the tree’s leafing out, blooming, and ripening of its fruit. The space is open to both performance and contemplation, observing the public or the fruit. The broken concrete of the installation indexes the margins of the city, the sidewalks that both connect us and separate us. Created in collaboration with La Loma Development.
