“Yes, I desire that pink sphere” a young woman says, in French, pointing to a pink globe amongst shelves stacked with oranges and orange soda. A man in all black retrieves the sphere, asking “This one?” He’s wearing stilts, a hairnet and pale greenish face paint.

“Yes, that is the one,” the woman responds, placing it into her orange purse. It perfectly matches the surrounding soda and fruits. She then grabs a neon green Swiffer which she refers to as a “spear.” Shortly thereafter, a man with green hair skateboards through the set.

This is “Easternsports,” the contemporary art world’s absurdist take on a soap opera.
