Migrants: The Case of Eferding, 360 photographs, 2013

When I began to investigate where the food I buy in a nearby shop comes from, I found that I have the whole world in my neighbouring street. The exotic sorts of fruit and fresh vegetables on offer in the middle of a cold winter must certainly have been grown elsewhere, but also most of the grain and seeds come from countries with cheap labour. And like all migrants, this food comes quietly into the country.

I photographed the food types one after the other and then noted down their name and where it comes from. In this way a document has been compiled with 400 sorts of fruit and vegetables, including a list of their respective homelands.

”Similarly as with real-life migrants ending up in various files as index cards with their photographs, names, and countries of birth, the exhibition Migranti likewise presents a thorough catalogue-like inventory of various fruits, stating their name, country of origin, as well as a picture of their shadow and essence.

Every entry represents an image which narrates its own story of two different worlds – the world of prosperity and the world of poverty, the world of satiation and the world of hunger, the world it comes from and the world it travels to. The exhibition Migranti is a fresh commentary on our time, system, and the simple truths of life.” Bunker
