Rirkrit Tiravanija Untitled (apron and Thai pork sausage) 1993

  • Not on view

Untitled (apron and Thai pork sausage) is a multiple that can be used to make a pork sausage. Tiravanija is best known for creating situations in which the division between art object and everyday activity is deliberately blurred, by serving food in a gallery, for instance, or creating situations in which others are invited to produce something: “Like a good recipe, everyone knows what it is, what it tastes like and even how to make it again—perhaps even differently, following their own interpretation; or perhaps it would be a base for something completely different, a possibility.”

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
