potatoes, peppers and produce of varying shapes and sizes show off their ‘secret’ lives as pro skateboarders, grinding on spaghetti pasta strands and surfing down the sink. paris-based artist benoit jammes has cooked up the ‘skitchen’ series — aptly comprising the words skate and kitchen — to induce a playful fantasy around the domestic pastimes of ordinary fruits and vegetables. bananas and apples coast through the kitchen with ease, kickfliping and nosegrinding on rolling pins and tableware — a tomato, however, gets caught up in the fun and makes a rather ungraceful landing, winding up as ketchup.
