Design week Milano – “Gummy Bears” 2021
“Gummy Bears” 2021 installation of “Haribo golden bear” (15x9x7) bears made with candies and chocolates embedded in resin. The installation is part of the “Peek a boo” exhibition at the Nhow hotel in Milan which from 4th September for the “Design week” will once again be the stage of the 29th exhibition, based on the theme of play. The name of the exhibition is the translation in English of the famous children’s game “bubu settete” and will develop the theme of play and childhood at 360 °. I had previously created Pop works with giant sweets or covered with a texture of colored pins, hence the idea of making sweets for children and nothing seemed more appropriate to me than making many giant bears like the famous Haribo fruit gummies, so loved by children. Greedy since childhood, I tried to blend together the double passion for art and sweets. A kind of creative oven from which sweets, cuddly, refined, greedy and fun come out.
In addition to the installation of the “GUMMY” bears, inside the NHOW hotel there will also be other installations and sculptures always made with Gobbetto resins.
