Cocos d’ Amour, 2015-2016
Pressed coconut fibre, C-prints
These evasive, allegedly aphrodisiacal nuts appear in Benoite Groult’s ‘Salt on our Skin’- the German translation “Salz auf Unserer Haut” of the french original “Les Vaisseaux du Coeur” is used in the installation. This translation has informed much of my work. They are rare and protected. Exhibited are my own photos- the only form of the nut which I have been allowed to take with me- from a few Greenhouses and Museums in Western Europe.
