TORONJAS - GRAPEFRUITS
MARTA MINUJIN'S PERFORMANCE
“Arte agrícola en acción - Toronjas” (Agricultural art in action - Grapefruit), a work originally created by the highly awarded Argentinian visual artist Marta Minujín in Mexico City in 1977, is being reconstructed by Minujín in collaboration with Miller as part of the 2016 Frieze New York Festival. “Toronjas” receives its US premiere on May 7 in Seabury Hall in Chelsea, where twenty people, dressed in white overalls with yellow buckets covering their heads, spread over the floor 6000 grapefruits, while dancing and singing onomatopoeic phrases alluding working with the ground, inside a square wooden frame. Produced by Another Space with additional support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, “Toronjas” will remain on exhibit for the duration that it takes for the fruit to ripen into decay.
