Inspiration for P A R K - sweet in the beginning and bitter in the end.
For the group show P A R K, opening the 20th of July at the Galerie im Turm in Berlin, curated by Celina Basra, I am working on a very special scent that will be displayed in the space.
I will be also presenting a limitted amount of vials that you will be able to acquire as a scent souvenir of the show.
The exhibition is all about a PARK being a playground, a concept store, a holiday or a theme park. It is about the curation and organisation of recreative spaces for our leisure and free time.
My scent is being designed towards the bitter-sweet feeling of these places and spaces. The guilt of feeling happy in a controled enviroment. The domination of the cotton candy in our lifes. The burnt sugar, the so acurate and simulated feeling of love after taking XTC.
Sniff and get a ride.
Everything is possible.
Controling your fantasy.
Sweet in the begining and bitter in the end.
Burnt sugar, cotton candy, popcorn, caramel, dissonant note.
"Many people are experimenting with the drug ecstasy I heard you say once that a lie is sweet in the beginning and bitter in the end, and truth is bitter in the beginning, and sweet in the end I have been meditating, but I don't have the experiences people report from the drug ecstasy. Is the drug like the lie, and meditation the truth? Or am I missing something that could really help me?"
