In They ask to stay, a delicately beaded net, made using an artisanal and ritualistic weaving technique, evokes the oppositional dynamics of its contents: bananas (a mass-marketed product)molded from industrial concrete. The weight of the fossilized banana represents the burden of its historical memory, which is obscured by the simplified modern mobility of merchandise transport.
