Rooms made from and filled with cake sounds wonderful. That is until we look a bit closer, and our cake fantasy quickly turns into a twisted fever dream.
Break Bread LA is a new art installation by Scott Hove, with rooms seemingly made from nothing but cake. Of course, the scenario of floor-to-ceiling frosting is not exactly what it seems.
Firstly, we cannot show up to the LA gallery with a fork, expecting to eat the exhibit… it’s made mostly from building materials, house paint and spackle. Secondly, throughout the rooms, items protrude from the cake walls — such as animal jaws, machine guns, and switchblades. Meant to add contrast to “that bougie cake look,” the items, according to Hove, “possess a real fierce quality that affects us on a very deep level.”
Break Bad LA also includes a watercolor gallery by Keith Magruder, aka Baker’s Son, and will run until March 13th at Think Tank Gallery in Los Angeles.
