Sejla Kameric – Eat my heart outPublic 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.”

Enoc Armengol – PanpaatiSpain-2010 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.

Csurka Eszter – bread-sculpture action2003. október 19. Budapesti Õszi Fesztivál / Fogyasztható mûvészet – ZabArt Várfok Galéria Photos by Sárközi Csaba
During a whole day, under a tent big pieces of dough are stretched on steel frame shaping mans, womans and children then they are place in furnace to be baked. When the bread persons are baked well the public start to consume step by step, so all what remain are the steel wire frames.
It can be interpreted as a human being, who has a rigid frame covered with this living hot material – bread. It has it’s on life till it is consumed by itself.
At the same time it can be viewed as a relation between sacred and profane, between the artwork as creation and the consumer who eagerly wants to own everything if is possible inside him. After destruction he realizes what have he done.
The text is translated by me from Encz Sarolta’s text written in Balkon – contemporary art magazine Hungary
