DON’T TOUCH WHAT YOU CAN’T AFFORD
is a visually engaging artwork: the appeal of the installation represents
at the same time the platitude that it is. Screaming for attention, inviting,
amusing, playful and even sensual, yet reflective.
The installation intends to actively provoke the viewers thinking about each
individual surrender to temptations. It questions our consumptive behavior,
our greed, symbolically expressed in workmanship and use of materials.
Surprise, beauty, good or bad taste fused in a nice looking and sensational
stimulus. Harmoniously ordered by this trinity as the personification of beauty,
joy and happiness. Come and let seduce you – look into the chocolate eyes of
our world-famous model – before she melts…
