Push Pull Taffy Performance
September 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The performance Push Pull, stemming from Valeska Soares’ explorations with sugar, features sun-warmed masses of salt water taffy hanging from metal hooks. Performers stretch and pull the candy while inviting visitors to consume chunks of these slowly stretching sculptures, resulting in a sensual and conceptual exchange. Push Pull parodies the line between art object and spectator, highlighting ideas of excess, overconsumption as well as the consumer’s pursuit of delectable pleasures.
