Thomas Hirschhorn: Jumbo Spoons & Big Cake

 
9782551235728: Thomas Hirschhorn: Jumbo Spoons & Big Cake

Jumbo Spoons and Big Cake is a monumental installation that would resemble a topsy-turvy reference center except for the presence of a gigantic cake and with 12 spoons at its core. Modeled after souvenir spoons, they are emblematic of individuals or entities the artist associates with failed utopias: Mies van der Rohe, Rosa Luxemburg, Malevich, Nietzsche, Venice, China and the Chicago Bulls basketball team. In this installation, the artist offers a space for reflection on the an overabundance of information juxtaposed with the urgent question of global hunger. Jumbo Spoons and Big Cake was shown at the Chicago Art Institute and at the Centre Pompidou.
