Bread on Earth is a publishing platform supporting the diverse dialogues that stem from our relationship to grain, in Lexie’s words: “I research bread and write about it. I also place it into non-traditional visual contexts as a means of calling attention, catalysing diverse dialogues. I occasionally make bread into sculptures and photographs, and am building a website and community surrounding it. That initiative is called: Bread on Earth”
Fat & Furious Burger is a self-initiated project born from the collision of two strong appetites. Thomas & Quentin (who founded the Graphic Design & Art Direction Studio Furious) were so bored about random sandwich at lunchtime they decided to cook some crazy burgers in their little kitchen
Asier Sanz-Fast Food Trump International Biennial of Humor,2018
The Spanish caricaturist (Bilbao, 1969), who has now achieved worldwide fame, also won the public prize for the 29th edition of the International Biennial of Humor in Art.
The highly sought after illustrator of books and the official journalist of the newspaper “Diario”, won the match thanks to the unanimous approval of the voters with his caricature for recognizing the non-physiognomic character of the work and for the irreverent play on the Donald misunderstanding – Mac Donald.
Isabelle Frances McGuire – There is always someone working harder than you. I am that someone Dead dough, shrink plastic, June bug. 2017.
McGuire prints “There will always be someone working harder than you” in small text, jammed into a frame made out of thin loaves of bread. The message seems to allude to capitalist culture’s relentless demand to always work harder, but at the bottom of the frame is a line written in the same font, “I am that someone,” an indication that McGuire’s frustrations are directed as much inward as at the culture in general.
“I’m obsessed with bread, but the part of bread that I’m obsessed with is the science behind it: how yeast and bacteria can assist our lives,” McGuire says. “I use bread and yeast and sugar on the glass so that it will transform the piece into something else.”
Lai-I-Chern – Transaction / Translation 10th Taipei Biennial “Gestures and Archives of the Present, Genealogies of the Future” Taipei Fine Art Museum, Taipei, 2016
“The two-year-long project Transaction / Translation is an attempt to preserve myself within society. Trying to leave a trace of me on the planet, trying to keep myself existing as long as possible, trying to prove that I ever existed, trying to make myself a reference of the present.[…] I develop my work in the context of monetary circulation in Taiwan, using one-hundred NTD (New Taiwan Dollar) notes as a medium for self-preservation. I always start with baking 24 breads conserving my labour, translating the breads into money by selling them for 100 NTD each and using the notes for further exchanges.”
Partnering with the London-based Skip Gallery, an improvised gallery space inside a huge waste container you usually see on the side of the street filled with construction rubble and whatnot, Turk has created a tongue-in-cheek piece that is, among all things, very meta.
Inside the skip – a place to dispose of rubbish – we see a packet of Skips prawn cocktail, a popular snack in the UK. According to the artist, the chips reminded him of the sacramental bread used in the ritual of Eucharist by Roman Catholics.
