About

How we behave and interact with art is dictated by context and our preconceived notion of how to act in a gallery setting. This artwork questions those behaviours and puts them to the test. The cupcakes on display are edible, with the audience encouraged to take one. However, there is a twist. Half the cakes on display are baked with salt, the other half baked normally with sugar. There are always consequences with risks and in this case you could be on the receiving end of a very salty gag-inducing cake.
