Delicious Art

Hamburger Kunsthalle

From Berlin first back to Hamburg to post a few impressions from the Hamburger Kunsthalle.
An extensive museum complex consisting of 3 buildings.

In the Galerie der Gegenwart I photographed the next series which I named DELICIOUS ART because the work consists entirely of sweets.
The artist himself gave it the more mysterious title “Untitled” (Lover Boys).
The artificial carpet consists of Blue and White spiral Candies in clear wrappers, endless supply, and is owned by the Glenstone Museum, Potomac, Maryland, USA

The artist, Félix González-Torres (November 26, 1957 - January 9, 1996), was a Cuban-born American visual artist. González-Torres was known for his minimal installations and sculptures in which he used materials such as light bulbs, clocks, piles of paper or packaged hard candy.
González-Torres was considered a process artist in his day due to the nature of his 'removable' installations, the process being an important feature of the installation.
Many of his installations invite the viewer to take a piece of the work with him: a series of works allows the viewer to take wrapped candies from a stack and thus contribute to the fading of the sculpture over the course of time. the exhibition.

Visitors are requested not to take more than one piece of candy.
