Rotten Fruit Studded With Jewels By Luciana Rondolini
For her ‘Tiffany Project’, artist Luciana Rondolini turns rotten fruit into shiny objects by covering them with jewels made from plastic.
“The brilliance of novelty makes us forget the real value of objects, and the fact that they are all perishable and doomed to become obsolete.” In an attempt to explore the relation between people and their objects in today’s disposable society, the artworks challenge the viewer’s perception of his or her surroundings. Living and working in Buenos Aires, Rondolini’s work has been exhibited internationally.
In a statement about the project, Rondolini says: “The brilliance of novelty makes us forget the real value of objects, and the fact that they are all perishable and doomed to become obsolete. These fruits, then, work as a Vanitas, reminding us of the deterioration and forgetfulness to which all things are subjected.”
