This exhibition will feature contemporary art made exclusively with sugar by ten female artists. By embodying the ephemeral nature of the substance, many of the installations will only last for the duration of the exhibition.
As a species, we are predisposed to seek out sugar to supplement our diet. "Sweet tooth" and "sugar rush" are colloquial phrases used to describe our bodies' cravings for and reaction to the substance. Our inclination to seek out the sweet stuff speaks to the pervasiveness of sugar in the visual arts.
Artists include Matina Bourmas, Irianna Kanellopoulou, Judith Klausner, Stephanie Jones, Claire McArdle, Shelley Miller, Mylyn Nguyen, Janet Tavener, Claire Anna Watson and Elizabeth Willing.
