Cancelled Crop

Dennis Oppenheim – Cancelled Crop


In September the field was harvested in the form of an X. the grain was isolated in it’s raw state, further processing was withheld. The material is planted and cultivated for the sole purpose of withholding it from a product- oriented system. Isolating this grain from further processing (production of food stuffs) becomes like stopping raw pigment from becoming an illusionistic force on canvas.
