Banana Accelerationism

The Complex building previously operated as a banana wholesale market. This laid the foundation for the development of the exhibition as artists Laura Ní Fhlaibhín and Sean Lynch peeled off in their own directions.

Elements to be found among the newly commissioned artworks include a discussion about the use of ethylene gas in the banana ripening process, terracotta sculptures on the facade of Dublin City Fruit and Vegetable Market, St Mary’s Abbey founded 1139, over five hundred skeletal remains found nearby, a tour of Dublinia Viking Museum, the floor and subterranean levels of Lidl on Aungier Street, bananas cast in bronze, three mini fridges turned into a live wormery, the European Nightcrawler, the Red Wiggler, Solas na Glasraí by Rachel Joynt, numerous attempted visits to see the Van Gogh Experience, a N. Smyth & Co. Business Card, presenting their motto – “BIG ENOUGH TO COPE, SMALL ENOUGH TO CARE”, clay sculpture, medieval tiles, stone with decorative patterns, footage of Leinster House, a piping system, theatre lights, stage decks, embroidered hotel bath towels and slippers.
