Bread head sculptures – András Böröcz 2003 – New York
One of András Böröcz and his wife Robbin Ami Silverberg’s actions was carried out at the Popieluszko Square next to their apartment, the purpose of which was to have the pigeons floating in the square devouring or at least breaking down the sculptures made of bread. The pigeons walked around the bread heads, but did not harm them, paying tribute to Böröcz’s art. The square was named after a Polish priest murdered in 1987. Later the Polish community in Brooklyn erected a statue for his memory. The head of the statue was broken on the day before the initiation. Böröcz reacted with the Breadhead statue in action, documented by Robbin Ami Silverberg and become the Bread Head Story.
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, catalyzing 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”

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.”
