NEVER FRUIT

What if you thought about your daily actions as part of change in society. In 2020 artist Heidi Nikolaisen invited us to think about the idea of micro-activism in the intervention NEVER FRUIT. 

We're in the harbour of Odense, Denmark. Green shapes are scattered around the sand on a volley court. Cast from the sand they lie in, the shapes are inspired from a South American fruit. The Chirimoya. And they tell a peculiar story.
In 1943, during the German occupation, Sigurd Weber, a shipyard electrician, managed to sabotage the mining ship "Linz" in this very harbour. "Linz" was originally supposed to be serving as a cargo ship for fruits from South America to Europe, but was converted to a mining ship by the German forces. Sigurds sabotage led to a general strike that quickly escalated to other cities.
