Hans-Peter Feldmann– Bread

object  –  2009,
artist born and lives in Düsseldorf
exhibition: 11′th International Istambul Biennial

“Bread (2008) consists of a slice of bread, the middle of which has been eaten, so that the remaining crust frames an absence and emptiness. The crust is shown on the white museum pedestal as a sculpture. Evoking metaphors of bread as a symbol of life and labour, but also of precariousness and poverty, this small, modest work possesses true monumentality” – text source
