There was at the Jack Hanley Gallery in NYC, and it featured a myriad of gherkins.
Yes - zee pickles.
A haunting, upright, righteous horde of 26 of them, titled - 'Selbstporträt als Gurken'.
In our daily life, we use our language and words without thinking about. But here the etymology of the vegetables:
The word “cucumber” goes back on the Latin word “cucumis”. The Today’s word has been developed from the genitive form “cucumer” over the old French “cocombre” (modern French: “concombre”) to “cucumber”.
The word “gherkin” goes back to the Greek word angurion for “immature”, because the gherkins were harvested unripe.
