And Such Was Their Hunger for the Land
And Such Was Their Hunger for the Land records a durational performance in which Mrs. Kim sits before a towering platter of grapes in her garden. She chops each grape with a garden spade, as dusk sets in. In the sound track, a young Korean woman reads passages about discrimination and debt from John Steinbeck’s novel, The Grapes of Wrath.
