1,000 Rejected Citrons

Photographic series, 2021, 100 x 65 cm / 40 x 26 cm

The series '1,000 Rejected Citrons' features individual portraits of citrons that were not selected to be part of a Jewish ritual that takes place every autumn during the holiday of Sukkot because of their queer shape and aesthetic flaws. The work shifts the focus from a repetitive and endless quest for standardised perfection towards the individual and unique nature of each of the rejected citrons, recognising their peculiarities as virtues rather than flaws. The photographed citrons were also part of the installation 'The Mausoleum of Rejected Citrons' in Squillace, Italy.
