Artist talk by Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young) Fallen Fruit uses fruit as a lens to investigate urban space, ideas of neighborhood and new forms of located citizenship and community. From protests to proposals for new urban green spaces, the artists aim to reconfigure the relation between those who have resources and those who do not, to examine the nature in and the nature of the city, and to investigate new, shared forms of land use and property. David Burns and Austin Young are two members of the Los Angeles-based collective and exhibiting artists in Feast: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art. Fallen Fruit is a long-term art collaboration that began by mapping fruit trees growing on or over public property in Los Angeles. The collaboration has expanded to include serialized public projects, site-specific installations and happenings in various cities around the world. By always working with fruit as a material or media, the catalogue of projects and works reimagine public interactions with the margins of urban space, systems of community and narrative real-time experience. From participatory performances such as Public Fruit Jams and Fruit Meditations, to ongoing indexical work such as Public Fruit Maps and curated exhibitions that reorganize the social and historical complexities of museums and archives by re-installing their collections through syntactical relationships of fruit as subject, the three artists of Fallen Fruit — David Burns, Matias Viegener, and Austin Young — deploy fruit as a lens through which to see the world.
