Food Art Week
March 8, 2018 @ 17:00 - 23:00
Join us for an evening of food and art with special treats by HERMANN’S. An introduction to Food Art Week featuring Sugarcoat It a short film by the trio.
Interactive installation by Annique Delphine.
Artist Annique Delphine and Curators Emma McKee and Tania Olivares were invited to participate in this years Food Art Week Paris, and Food Art Week Mexico City. Their proposal: A life size sculpture of a woman built entirely out of Sugar. The sculpture will stand under a light drip of water, which will allow the public to witness the woman dissolve as a result of a constant yet seemingly unaggressive process. The time based installation intends to underline how we have been desensitized to damaging attitudes towards women.
It is within the trios interest to exhibit this piece at both Food Art Week Paris in (June, 2018) as well as Food Art Week Mexico City (October, 2018) because of the undeniable differences in both social contexts. They are interested in exploring the differences in response to the sculpture in a predominantly misogynistic society in contrast to more liberal and progressive public.
