taproot_art auction [iii] - FRUIT
september 17, 2022
mart gallery, dublin
middle english derived from old french, once again derived from latin- 'fructus' can be defined as 'enjoyment of produce, harvest’. indeed, the origins of language can serve as a good barometer for many things, but it is certainly a good way to understand how the masses felt about primitive things during humanity's more nascent stages. in the case for fruit, it would appear as though enjoyment is embedded in the very definition of its term, and understandably so. Fruit symbolises so much more than simply being a byproduct of the earth's natural labours, but also the enjoyment it offers to its both consumers, innovators and spectators alike. It is the foundation for juice, paintings, landscapes, perfumes, memes, vitamin intake, and now...well, auctions. for one night only, you can bask in this enjoyment and appreciate fruit in all its glories and capabilities, by observing great works from a set of top contemporary artists while devouring a mango simultaneously.
