Potatoes, Potatoes

Video, colour, sound, 4:11 min

Mladen Stilinović’ video shows the artist yelling “Potatoes, potatoes!”, echoing the many street sellers of potatoes in Croatia. In this case, however, the artist is in a snowy forest while squatting behind an entirely improvised cake stand. Just like in My Sweet Little Lamb!, the words do not correspond to the objects in front of the artist. The viewer sees the artist as a liar, until the camera takes us to the potatoes that are indeed hidden behind him.
