Grounding, a piece by Spanish-Welsh artist Rafael Perez Evans, was installed by a large lorry outside the Ben Pimlott building at Goldsmiths College in New Cross, part of the University of London.

The artist said the vegetables, which will eventually be collected as animal feed, were rejected by supermarkets. Video here https://youtu.be/ea7LcWKhXdc
