For an artist, it’s almost impossible to take anything for granted. And this is most likely very hard for an American artist to keep in the forefront of her mind. Fortunately, artists still find ways to express the condition of the human reality in very detailed ways. Case in point, the new Skittles exhibit in New York:
Kline presents Skittles, an industrial refrigerator containing smoothies produced by the artist using unconventional and poetic combinations of ingredients including kale chips, squid ink, sneakers, phone bills, and pepper spray. Each smoothie stands as a portrait of a different contemporary lifestyle. When grouped together, they evoke a landscape of aspiration, taste, and – at times – deprivation in a metropolis like New York City.
