I can never understand how some of the most mundane everyday things are seen as expensive in some art galleries, but that’s exactly the case with this pickled cucumber slice that Australian artist, Matthew Griffin, has given to an NZ art gallery. He reckons that his piece has a very high value and it’s supposed to deliberately make people wonder what we as human beings see as valuable.
So the piece is just a ketchup-covered pickle that’s deliberately stuck to the ceiling of the art gallery.
I wonder if this is just a mistake that he’s trying to cover up and if it’s gotten too far or if he genuinely thinks that this pickle is meant to be expensive, but I’m definitely not feeling it.
