Crystal Jam by Sookoon Ang
For reasons known only to herself, Singaporean artist calls this series: “Your Love Is Like A Chunk of Gold”. She has somehow managed to turn an ordinary, everyday object into something alien. The sculptures are still recognizably pieces of bread, but the multicolored crystal growths on them will make anyone look twice. The second look will probably turn into a long, hard stare while the viewer figures out how gems, or possibly Kryptonite, could be made to grow on bread. Sookon describes herself as a ‘teen slacker with delusions of grandeur’. According to her, art took away the slack and augmented the delusions.
