Potatoe Walkout 1 Favorite 



Mar 31 2013


Berlin, Germany

"Potatoe Walkout" is a series of art installations located outside public food venues, featuring potatoes and cucumbers outfitted in sunglasses, picket signs, umbrellas, and other objects (depending on the depicted scene, which varies). Some scenes represent protest, others represent army battles, and other represent acts of crucifixion.

In an interview about his staged potato protests: "The potato represents the human, whatever vegetable represents the human and that makes normal human situations funny or weird. It’s kind of a reference to German language too. In Germany Turkish people call Germans "Kartoffel" (Potato) and cucumber is “Gurke”, which means dork, and in my pieces the cucumbers represent the police who used to wear green".
