Sugared, is an exhibition that focuses on the pervasive and unnecessary use of added sugar in commercial food products. Each meticulously crafted work uses combinations of sugar, wood, ceramic, metal and glass to raise questions about excess and ritual. By exaggerating the features of objects associated with eating, this show examines the relationship between domestic and industrial aspects of refined sugar.
