invitatie-galateeaIoana Ciocan, la Galeria Galateea, Calea Victoriei nr. 132

Vernisaj 1 septembrie  2009,  ora 19   

Pe perioada expoziţiei publicul va putea admira o prajitură gigant (2-2,5 m) în care se va putea intra. Interiorul va fi comestibil, iar o voce ademenitoare ne va îndemna să o mâncăm. Accesul în prajitură se va face individual, iar privitorul va avea de ales dacă va da sau nu curs invitaţiei de a mânca.

În societatea contemporană, mâncarea şi în special dulciurile, au o legătură aproape intimă cu idealul de frumuseţe. La unii desertul funcţionează ca o terapie, la alţii acţionează ca un duşman. Cine va ceda tentaţiei?

”[…] Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words “EAT ME” were beautifully marked in currants. “Well, I’ll eat it,” said Alice, “and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door: so either way I’ll get into the garden, and I don’t care which happens!”

 She ate a little bit, and said anxiously to herself, “Which way? Which way?” holding her hand on the top of her head to feel which way it was growing; and she was quite surprised to find that she remained the same size. To be sure, this is what generally happens when one eats cake; but Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed  quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way.  So she set to work, and very soon finished off the cake.
