East End London the home to a wheatfield

Few things are as powerful as activist art. The remake of the 1982 wheatfield planted in downtown New York City by the artist Agnes Denes solidifies that idea. A French artist collective have reinterpreted the work she did in New York, only this time uprooting wheat from Lancashire and moved to a derelict site in Dalston.

The wheatfield is accompanied by a windmill that powers two public that will make bread, which will then be used as currency in town. This exhibit was created as a part of the Radical Nature show at the Barbican, and it is one of the most interesting exhibitions this year. The move to Dalston is an important one, as the UK has a curious mix of Brits, Turkish and Caribbean folk all living in the same community. It is meant as a lingering thought to how we produce food now, and how we relate to others as a species.
