A sweet installation just went up at the Standard Hotel, New York. Artist Julia Chiang has created a site-specific installation where All For You is spelled out with Ring Pop candy along the wall of the shop. Julia's known for taking your old childhood candy and turning them into interesting pieces of art. By spelling out words and phrases in Ring Pops, Chiang shows us the darker side of love. As the candy melts over time, it transforms and slowly disappears, leaving a sad and sickly sweet trace.
Julia Chiang has exhibited her work at Deitch Projects, The New Museum, OHWOW in Miami, Michael Steinberg Fine Art, Tina Kim Gallery, Printed Matter & in the Kantor/Feuer Window.
