Mark Handforth
‘Two Old Bananas’

Installation view, CASS Sculpture Foundation, 2015
Cast aluminum
3 parts, 305 x 217 x 180 cm

Cast in aluminium, the eponymous two bananas lean against each other. The viewers actively become part of the work, their bodies dwarfed by the sheer magnitude over three meters high of the shimmering metal fruit. Mark Handforth refers to late twentieth century
art movements such as Minimal Art and Pop Art as languages that he has learned to speak, and he is grateful to be able to switch between several languages in one and the same sentence.
