Potato Portraits by Ginou Choueiri


Lebanese artist Ginou Choueiri likes drawing portraits on potatoes. He has made hundreds of these that grow live and then eventually decay and die, probably because it would just be too disturbing to eat one.



Root vegetables become temporary art pieces in the hands of Ginou Choueiri, a Lebanese artist based in Beirut, Lebanon. She created these ‘Potato Portraits’ using the tubers because of the similarities she recognized between the human head and a spud.

Choueiri points out that "they come in different sizes, shapes and forms. Potatoes grow, live, and then decay, mirroring the ephemeral existence and fragility of our own human nature."

I'm not sure whether the Potato Portraits are representations of friends of the artist or famous people-recognize them, anyone? They do have character, especially when grouped in jute sacks.




"Human beings and potatoes have much in common.  We both come in different shapes, sizes and shades of color. Our skin is porous, scars, freckles, and both inevitably wrinkle and age with time. To portray this idea, I made an installation of over a thousand portraits, transforming everyone I know, random people on the street, as well as pop stars and politician into potatoes. I chose the potato to portray human faces because of the many striking parallels. Not only is their skin porous like ours, but their skin texture and color is very similar, and like us, they come in different sizes, shapes and forms." - Ginou Choueiri
