The question of giving in our consumerist society seems to have no place other than the dogma.
However, the time when the gift kept and pacified relations between different social groups is not so long a go.
Neither free nor exchange or barter, gift was a real system, political, social and cultural. What about it today?
What do we perceive of a gift?
Passive victims of conflicting messages from the "profitable" system to the devastating effects on both physical and mental, what would we become facing the feigned innocence?
In 1964, Roland Barthes wrote "Deciphering the signs of the world that always means fighting with a certain innocence of things"
We often feel guilty for the pleasure of eating sweets.
In the language of love in English, women and girls are often "sweeties" , "honey" and "sugar".
They are associated with sweet food .
Inspired by small offerings of temples found throughout Asia, we offer a playful installation, touch, mouthful and playful.
What will you do?
