“I have spent a long time working artistically to access and understand the concept of nature and its depiction. That is why I wanted to make a collection of utility objects in which the ackee fruit served as a model, which is what gave this collection its name. The ackee is an apple-like fruit that is incredibly toxic when unripe. I wanted to use that juicy idea in a collection of utility objects.”
– Åsa Jungnelius
The collection, which is part of Kosta Boda Artist Collection, launched in 2020.
