According to my mother banana was the first fruit I ever tasted. When I was a teenager I started to collect banana labels. Gone Bananas is painted based on my banana label collection.Why are exotic fruits, such as bananas, taken for granted as a commonplace product in the Scandinavian supermarkets? Dozens of magnified banana labels reflect the piercing abundance and the endless variety which westerner consumer runs into in everyday life.
