Two friends bought a pineapple for 1 pound and left it on the table in the gallery, where an exhibition called “Look again” was held, dedicated to a non-trivial view of the world, the ability to see the unusual in the ordinary. One of the students, Rory Gray, published his photo with the title “I created art”. Four days later, they returned to the gallery and found that the staff took the pineapple as an art object and placed it under a glass display case.

“Initially, my friend Rory Gray bought it as a joke for a friend who was allergic to pineapples, but after he didn’t find this joke funny, we didn’t know what to do with it. At the exhibition, we placed it next to some of the exhibits to see how long it will stay here before someone takes it. The next thing we know is that the pineapple was placed in a glass case, and we could not believe it, comments Lloyd Jack.“Light, camera, pineapple!” - so Lloyd Jack commented on his photo depicting reporters filming the story about the “new art object”.
