橘子

偶然在artnews看到這作品,  怎跟礁溪街上那番茄水果攤擺法一模一樣?

There are only two full days left to see “The Gentle Way (Judo),” the elegant group show organized by artist Zak Kitnick that counts among its choice artists Rochelle Goldberg, Anicka Yi, and Roelof Louw, whose gorgeous Soul City (Pyramid of Oranges) (1967) began its life as a pyramid of thousands of oranges that visitors may pick up and consume. When I stopped by last weekend, quite a few were missing and the pyramid was more like a fading ziggurat, though the fruit was still just barely fresh. Roberta Smith has already championed the works in The Times, but sometimes you just want to join the chorus: it’s pretty thrilling to think about the South African sculptor making it in 1967, years before such giveaways

became an academic tick. The piece suggests a warm, funky retort to the self-serious minimalism that prevailed in so many galleries at the time. There are no promises that the oranges will still be fresh on Saturday, when the show closes, but I imagine the work will still pack quite a tropical punch in the middle of this brutal winter.
