A gorgeous mile of fruit and flower garland wallpaper in a gradient of saturated hues contains within its two story installation multiple scenarios and vignettes of photography and ceramic, faux Grecian luxury statues, gilded mirrors, chaises and sundry objects. All of this exists in the mode of a secular temple to beauty, as well as a sort of public living room where communities are formed through the universal language of shareable fruit.
SUPERSHOW! is on view at the PDC Gallery through February 23, but this weekend’s Superday! Public Fruit Jam events and activations hearken back to Fallen Fruit’s early social systems works wherein folks are invited to come and make seasonal local (ideally homegrown or street-picked) fruit into flavorful jams to enjoy, and of course, to share. The weekend’s featured recipe is lemon-fig-lavender; the outdoor jamming is preceded by an artist talk with Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young), and Young will be taking his trademark portraits of whoever wants one inside the installation, plus music and apparently, cheerleaders.
