We are allowed to play with the food. The man is free or at least he should be. In this region people have different belief about playing with food, we learned from our ancestors that some things can’t be approached in a profane way.
This work destroys this belief, like the ad-hoc bread fight at the end of the nineties – at one of the UdvARTer exhibition’s party where they teared a few home made bread and made a long tiring bread fight. Barnabás’s blog

Ütő Gusztáv & Kónya Réka – Etna IV
performance – 1994 jul. 26
5-th AnnART – International Trench Arts Festival in/different MEDIUM3
Saint Ann Lake/Transylvania/Romania
The core-idea to compare a large homemade bread with Hungary was given by the artist’s great grandmother. From Bodok’s bread bakery he ordered a bread of 17 kg (37.4 pound). The size of the bread is linked to the tatar invasion. When people from the surrounding villages escaped into Almasi cave the survival solution was to run with a big bread.
In the performance they formally cut down the Transylvania part of the bread than cut in slices, anointed with grease, salted and trough a stencil with the text TRANSYLVANIA scattered some paprika powder on it. These bread slices have been offered to the public in three languages and was devoured with huge appetite.

The basic concept is our “daily bread” combined with our everyday book, our intellectual values. Our grandparents daily bread and daily meditation and wisdom melted in one a “books-object” and served on a home-woven cloth.
