Smart Gum, 2008
chewing gum, tiled floor
Edition 1 (+ 1 A.P.)
2011, "Een kwestie van kiezen Wilfredo Prieto", Metropolis M
This in situ work was exhibited at Annet Gelink Gallery, Amsterdam. On the gallery floor Prieto created a raster with spit out chewinggum, filling nearly the complete gallery. The chewing gum, reminiscent of the flattend gum one can find on any street, reminds the spectator of daily asocial behaviour. However, Prieto creates a contrast by placing the chewed gum in a new, organized setting.
