There are no more limits. We live in a society in which we always want to go further. The necessary is never enough. Too much is never enough.
We live with an insatiable sense of hunger, which we are insatiable but we can’t, we can’t do without.
With one of her latest works, the Israeli ceramic artist Ronit Baranga wanted to show us this insatiable hunger, turning it into something concrete and serving it almost literally on silver plates.
“All Things Sweet and Painful” is the name of her series of creations: what from afar looks like a table set with every delicacy, from fruit tarts to cream-covered cakes, approaching it reveals itself as a small theater of horrors.
Every single object comes to life, the cups walk on human fingers, the sweets are studded with mouths that scream at the top of their lungs.
“The table is a microcosm, inhabited with irresistible temptations.
The work of Ronit Baranga attracts and repels us at the same time, we need everything on the table although everything hides a sinful and evil side and this makes us feel uncomfortable. We don’t want to, but we keep watching. The question is: “Can you resist?”
