Solanum I & II

The potato, for example as a stand-in for asteroid 433 Eros, has been consistently making appearances in Antonia Hirsch’s work. With a nod to 19th century spirit photography the nightshade (Solanum tuberosum) in Solanum I &II, is photographed in the manner that meteorites are usually photographed by amateur enthusiasts. The characteristic cube in the foreground normally provides a size comparative for the meteorite and in what orientation it was found.
