the groundnut table

We adapted our custom tables into a single long table stretching the length of the turbine hall’s entrance slope. We placed hundereds of oranges and peelers along the table and the public were able to sit at the table and peel oranges, opening the top to create a fresh orange juice where the orange itself forms both the drink and the cup - a common way to consume oranges across West-Africa. The table also formed an invitation for the public to relax, spend time in the gallery space and interact with each other. An extension of the concept of the gallery space as a public space.
