The protagonist of ‘Potato The Greatest’ is a 3d scanned potato, more precisely, the potato that came second in the 2019 Harrogate Giant Vegetable Competition. In this film, our potato-protagonist tells us the tale of his genesis and his close brush with glory at the Harrogate Giant Vegetable Competition. He goes on to deliver a brief but aggrandized history of the potato in an attempt to dispel the potato’s reputation as a lowly “working class vegetable” and to re-align it as a vegetable of illustrious lineage, hence why he has now been immortalised as a contemporary sculpture.
