This project reflects upon the cultural landscape while questioning the realm sheltering art.
Should we swallow bitterness, or: should we spit it out and look at it?

“When it was mid-day, they saw a beautiful snow-white bird sitting on a bough, which sang so delightfully that they stood still and listened to it. And when its song was over, it spread its wings and flew away before them, and they followed it until they reached a little house, on the roof of which it alighted. And when they approached the little house they saw that it was built of bread and covered with cakes, but that the windows were of clear sugar.”

‘Hansel and Gretel’, by the brothers Grimm.

The art is covered by a glaze of prestige, aiming to attract the cultural elite. The more exclusive, the more status is produced.
