HONEY & BUNNY

Die Zuckerlwerkstatt

28.9.–6.10.2018

It’s well known that the way to the heart is through the stomach. The fact that passion takes the same route was shown by the sweet joint venture of the food designers Honey & Bunny and Die Zuckerlwerkstatt. The duo’s interested in playing with the materials, forms, and codes of our everyday food items and semi-luxury foods, which has often been demonstrated. At Herrengasse 6, Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter got to know the manufactory’s almost sculptural production methods and allowed the raw material’s culture-historical and medicinal aspects to set in a life-size body installation made of slightly spicy confectionery gems. “Sugar is lust. Sugar is suffering” was printed on the packaging. We would add the following: Sugar is passion.
