Vanitas: Oskar Dawick

In honor of the fact that I desperately need to grocery shop, I present to you the work of Oskar Dawick. His 2005 installation “Vanitas” was comprised of grocery items whose best-before dates expired during the exhibition. Each day another food item would perish until all were expired and so was his installation. Really interesting idea that makes me think about how much I hate having to throw away spoiled food.
