Sculpture, installation

I mainly focus on exploring materiality in my artistic practice. Lately, the research has focused on masses of hard candy as material, but also other types of sweets, food, bodies, metal, text. I make masses of hard candy by boiling a mixture of sugar, glucose, water and food coloring until it reaches 150 ºC.

I’m also working on a research project where I look at industrial and handmade production of sweets. For the project, I visit factories and look at the aesthetics of the machines and the work, the sterile environments and the monotonous repetitions, the large masses of the edible and the strong sweet smell.
