Some artsy vegetables (nsfw)

28 Feb


Belgian artist Heidi Voet calls this 2010 project Fruit & Vegetables. Unlike our aesthetically challenged fruit & veg here, these are both aesthetic and perhaps challenging, through Heidi’s unique juxtaposition. A statement from her website explains “Images of naked ladies taken from Chinese magazines are combined with vegetables. The fresh vegetables visually complete the young bodies, highlighting consumption and each other’s limited preservability.”

One of the images was incorporated into a poster & invitation/booklet for her exhibition If I Was Beautiful. If I Had The Time. by Belgian graphic designer Raf van Campenhoudt. The poster was turned into a billboard in the public space during the World Expo in Shanghai, 2010. (F&V via bellemelle)
