Caution Yellow, 2009

(Fimo, acrylic paint)

 From Charlie Chaplin to the Three Stooges to Woody Allen, the banana has been at the center of one joke after another, propelling comedians into head-over-heels antics. Slumped on the gallery floor, this to-scale replica of a banana peel is animated by the tension of  an impending drop, an implied narrative or an imagined prat-fall, with a nod to Newton. Caution Yellow requires that the viewer negotiate it both as an art object and as a safety hazard.
