Watermelon

I will find a way to steal a piece from the bienniale that can then be distributed to the public


I steal a watermelon from Sigalit Landau's work at the Isreali Pavillion, and offer it to the public of a tour outside the Giardini by Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, (Palestine & Iran) part of the Speech Matters exhibition at the Danish Pavillion. I gave the watermelon to the people taking the tour, who eat the fruit sharing a spoon without knowing its origin, or that by consuming it they were being part of a piece.




Email Correspondence with Sigalit Landau

Hello Sigalit,

I'm a fellow artist , and I have a question about the watermelons in the exhibition, I have friend from Israel that told me that they are very traditional fruit of the Area. Are they part of the exhibition of just for decoration of the pavilion? I really enjoyed the video work of the girl in all the computers and the bronze shoes outside. I wish you good luck with building the salt bridge, and I hope you have time to answer my question, it sounds silly but is really important to me.

peace,

Emilio Rojas
