New Work at Art Basel in Hong Kong 2024

A new work inspired by the recent research trip to the Caribbean

“The Great Dark Fleet” is an artwork created using dried banana peels that symbolize capitalism, particularly the business practices of the American multinational fruit companies of the 20th century that operated between Central America, the Caribbean, and the United States. The title of the work is a nod to the “Great White Fleet” that transported bulk of the produce in the region. 

The work was first introduced at Art Taipei 2023 and now presented at Art Basel in Hong Kong 2024 by Mind Set Art Center.
