Sejla Kameric – Eat my heart out

Public project, Manciano, Italy
16 March 2002

Text taken from the artists website:

“Dedicated to the memory of my father who was killed in

Sarajevo on the 16th March, 1993.

An exhibition / public art project was opened on 16 March 2002 in the small town of Manciano, Italy. In the streets and in the main square, Manciano residents set up tables on which were served local wine and culinary specialties. In addition to all this food, visitors could also try heart-shaped rolls that were prepared by a local bakery according to my instructions. The rolls were served on napkins that were printed with photographs taken in Sarajevo between 1992 and 1995 – these images were taken from the documentary film, “Do you remember Sarajevo.” That day, over food and drink, with mixed feelings of happiness and sadness, we spoke of love and war, life and death; and we remembered Sarajevo. Photographs documenting this work are still displayed in the bakeries of Manciano.”

KFC – Double Down

sandwich, worldwide

Another milestone to transform people into  zombies.

“Otherwise, what you have is a wad of random stuff. A recent “low carb” trend reminiscent of the Atkins Diet, however, seems to have people straying from that tried-and-true formula in favor of what many might call “odd” results.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken sandwich, referred to lovingly as the “Double Down,” has, as of Monday, been made available nationwide. KFC began test marketing its new sandwich last April in both Rhode Island and Nebraska.” read more

Chairs and table made from bread

Enoc Armengol – Panpaati

object, product-design

Panpaati. Every piece forms a living, organic, natural structure, which suffers the alterations on having interacted with the environment, humans, animals…This is food! It creates a vital cycle, which it’s born, lives, and dies without leaving rest.

100% alive matter. 100% biodegradable.

The work is formed by a set of common furniture, composed by two chairs and one table, these turn automatically into the core of a synergy of shared actions, both internal and external, that modify the initial form constantly.

Somehow this installation can be a clear reflect from the actual society and production process. Fast, and the short-time life of the current, almost ephemeral furniture. Nevertheless, these pieces can also be eaten becoming part of the living process.

BBB Johannes Deimling – What’s in my head (Was in meinem Kopf ist)

k-salon, D-Berlin 2009
Duration 32 minutes

“Description of action Similar like the structure of a collage I combine different small actions into one image: Throwing stepp by step red powder on my barefooted feets; putting wooden wings into a roll; slapping with my hands in my face; building up a tree from cardboard, dripping wax from candles (Y,O,U) on my breast, sticking papers in the shape of a “B” on the cardboard branches; hanging up a wooden puppet on the tree; creating a nest and putting small toy-tanks into it; tying a bread on my face, sticking forks into the breadhead, creaming my breadface, throwing red powder on it; spilling noodles letters over the audience; exploding the roll with the wooden wings. ”  More images from the artist’s website
