SWEET DREAMS is the sugar-sweet topic of the 2009 Wintersalon. It goes far beyond mere the culinary. The artworks of the three artists address bliss, delight and desire.
Carin Fürst has focused on "upcycling" - of refining neglected materials into jewellery - since 2003. The spark for the first pieces was the idea to reduce waste and to underline the distinctiveness of apparently valueless materials and chance finds. For Sweet Dreams, Carin Fürst uses the wrapping of sweets and the packaging of chocolates to create an exceptional jewellery collection.
Warren Laine-Naida's medium is chocolate. The impressive sculptures wow the viewer both through their form and their tempting smell. The artist, born in England, working in Bremen and now heading to Canada, is exhibiting "The Seven Deadly Sins ", archaic, bizarre objects sculpted in massive chocolate.
Sylve Proidl's new series deals with sweets and drinks, looking beyond their calorific nutritional value to address yearning and pleasure. The oil paintings in macro-format provide a new perspective of sweet food and candied fantasies.
The singer Eva Dworschak, accompanied by Bernhard Käferböck on piano, provide the acoustic ingredient.
