From Unit 17: "In Bananagram (2016), Durey continues his interests in found material, collage, performance and humour. For this work, the artist has taken a found colour negative - date and author unknown - and has enlarged the image using a colour photogram technique. This process allows new forms to appear on the found image. 5 stacked bananas ranging in colour and direction, from ice blue and green-to yellow ombre, become wedged within silhouettes of the tropical fruit, their outlined forms describing a fruit platter from the found negative. This series of unique photographs were originally produced for Undecimals, an artist exchange project created and organized by artists."
