The Bounty of the Earth
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

In The Bounty of the Earth, fruit signifies the exotic, the unconcious, art and nature. An interwoven text of music, image and words recounts the fate of a piece of fruit as it becomes a commodity to be bought, sold and consumed. However, before it is finally eaten, it resumes its symbolic function as art, manifested in a still life. The original music for this tape was composed by Sylvaine Martin and Serge Montreuil.
