Aude Moreau  /  Tapis de sucre 3

Sugar Carpet, a perishable installation in refined, white sugar, uses food as the raw material of the art object, transferring it to an architectural space through a game of role-reversal. This installation creates a confrontation between an industrial space and the modern comfort traditionally associated with carpets, “edible” material, and the pollution produced by metallurgy.
