burned toaster bread
Using his toaster, the artist burned every piece of bread before drying them out and flattening them so they were ready to be positioned in a giant frame. He then spent hours scraping the toast with a knife to create the lighter parts of the image, such as Christ’s halo, and a blow torch to create darker patches. (read more here)Photo: MASONS

Mladen Stilinović – Works with food
exhibition: 11′th International Istambul Biennial
“Since the mid-1970s, Mladen Stilinović has developed artistic strategies using ‘poor’ materials. His works are simple in their execution and engage with such subjects as pain, poverty, death, power and the language of repression, as ongoing and mutually connected conditions. Usually the title is inscribed into the work itself, for example, in a series dealing with food: Geometry for the poor, Cabbage, Borecole, Potato, Bean, Leek, Corn, Cakes, I bite myself, I devour myself, Eat yourself, Bite yourself and Charge, cakes!” – text sourcephoto credit: Estefán Arnold

Molnar Krisztina – Crater in a home-made bread
location: Timisoara/Banat/Romania hardware: Moulinex Home Bread baker: Csiki Zsolt
The big crater/hole in the center of this home-made bread was created accidentally. It is like the Kinder Surprise toy but there is nothing inside, and Ajna still like it. Maybe, this paranormal phenomena was done because the name of the artist “Molnar” in translation means miller.
(Editorial note) I imagine myself 20 times smaller inside of a crater like this when the bread is baking – that hot smmmmmell concentrated in one place, and I sprinkle a bit of butter on the interior wall. Actually if we bake a large scale bread, this idea can turn into a luxurious sauna for rich people and the byproduct (bread) can be eat by poor people – after the sauna is over, and the bread is cold.

Vetró Barnabás – Me rhino
We are allowed to play with the food. The man is free or at least he should be. In this region people have different belief about playing with food, we learned from our ancestors that some things can’t be approached in a profane way.
This work destroys this belief, like the ad-hoc bread fight at the end of the nineties – at one of the UdvARTer exhibition’s party where they teared a few home made bread and made a long tiring bread fight. Barnabás’s blog

Ütő Gusztáv & Kónya Réka – Etna IV
Saint Ann Lake/Transylvania/Romania
The core-idea to compare a large homemade bread with Hungary was given by the artist’s great grandmother. From Bodok’s bread bakery he ordered a bread of 17 kg (37.4 pound). The size of the bread is linked to the tatar invasion. When people from the surrounding villages escaped into Almasi cave the survival solution was to run with a big bread.
In the performance they formally cut down the Transylvania part of the bread than cut in slices, anointed with grease, salted and trough a stencil with the text TRANSYLVANIA scattered some paprika powder on it. These bread slices have been offered to the public in three languages and was devoured with huge appetite.
