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

Adam Sheldon – Crucifixion

Made for Anglican Church of St Peter
Great Limber – 2010 Jan.
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)

Mladen Stilinović – Works with food

object  -  1978 -2009,
artist born in Belgrade. Lives in Zagreb
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 source

Crater in a bread

Molnar KrisztinaCrater in a home-made bread

ready-made -  2009
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.
