John Kørner: Cosmopolitan Super Fruits

8 Apr-14 May 2022


Following Intercontinental Super Fruits, John Kørner’s recent solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, this exhibition builds on themes of consumerism, globalisation and networks of distribution and exchange.

Intercontinental Super Fruits took as a starting point the idea of the corner shop, a place of supply and consumption familiar to us all. Always treating content with various degrees of abstraction and metaphor, in this body of work Kørner brings into focus modes of display (fruit on the tree and vine, and picked, packaged and on the shelf) and the movement of foodstuffs as they collide with aspects of contemporary politics and ecological thought in the context of ever-evolving concepts of the local, regional, national and global.
