Sugatarium explores the uncontrollable and insanely addictive hold sugar has on us. In these troubled and unsettled times – where nothing seems to make sense – artist Peter Anton heightens the delirium by transforming the gallery into a Sugatarium. He describes the transformed space as “an asylum that is locked up and long forgotten. Visitors must sneak into the Sugatarium through an open window. Institutional beds await the new ‘patients’ where they can rest and view the artwork while confronting their own dependence on sweets.” At the exhibition opening, for their own safety, visitors will only be allowed to speak with Anton through a glass partition via a phone intercom system.
Monumental-sized, vibrant, and hyper-realistic sculptures – including a cherry pie, an ice cream sundae, cake, macarons, and other sugary treats – will be smashed, mushed, splattered, broken and thrown throughout the space. Anton’s sculptures are highly detailed and hand-crafted from carefully selected and manipulated materials, including resin, plaster, wood, clay, aluminum, and acrylic and oil paints.
