Acupuncture for Temporal Fruit
Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park
|"Jen Hall's Acupuncture for Temporal Fruit, (is) a piece that consists of a series of tomatoes being pierced by acupuncture needles sensitized to activity around them; the more motion they detect, the more they jab. Yet it's the tomatoes that steal the show."|
"Each of them leaks, caves in, and grows moldy around its wounds at its own rate and in its own fashion. The needles, by comparison, lack personality; they are slaves to a repetition compulsion. "
