“Through the ages, I have been associated with immortality, temptation and love. Today, I am all but the humble fruit, a snack. My creator, Yosuke Amemiya, challenged my sweet origins and if you look a little closer, my hyper-realness is brought to life with the help of fibre-reinforced plastic, sculpted, formed, and hand-painted into the juicy, delectable, oddly-fascinating shape that I am. My curious appearance is a question of what is fact or fiction, a riddle. If you hold me – I will surely melt away. If you touch me – my softness will break away. Only with the heart, in total silence – you will find the answer.
I am a creation by Yosuke Amemiya and I come from the Truth series.”
