Once I was sitting in the tube in Berlin eating a Banana. On one point I felt really uncomfortable and observed while I was biting into the soft flesh of this longish, curved, yellow fruit. Eating a Banana in my opinion has something really sensual and erotic – of course – it remembers of a certain sexual practice. I liked the idea that people would associate sexuality or sexual practices with the banal eating of a fruit.
At that point I started to collect pictures of people with bananas in my archives. This series is a selection of this pictures showing people simply eating bananas. Some of them are quite neutral but others are really affective.
“Banana” is an ongoing project.
