Sugar and proteins
“Sugar and Proteins” elaborates the dietary dichotomy between what we like and what is supposed to be good for us. Sugars are tasty but they are poisonous.  They tend to be colorful, when properly combined with other foods.  Proteins, on the other hand, we are told, are building blocks for our muscles. But are they always good for you? Well, every time we pick up a new book on diets, we are told something different…
In “Sugar and Proteins”, appetizing candies and pastries are combined with what may be the future source of proteins: insects.  In the artwork, insects are dispersed among candies and pastries, contoured by ceramics produced by the Japanese designer Capi. It is a reinterpretation of classic still life seen through a surreal vision.
