Hsiang-Lin Kuo


— From FAUX Musa (2021-2022)

Video 1’24”


A variegation-pattern addict breaks into a greenhouse to create his dream plant— the variegated banana. He breaks in, finds the banana, and meticulously applies white spots on the plant's leaves. He takes his time adoring the beautiful pattern while he replicates the magnificent design. He has no will of stealing the banana out of the greenhouse; of course, taking a selfie with it would be good enough to show off — and to save him from trouble.

Commissioned and will be exhibited in National Taiwan Science Museum 2024-2026.
