Trick or Treat

Mixed media, (2019)

Trick or Treat is a conceptual mise-en-scene of a candy store. Here the visitor can try six different candies. Each candy activates elements whcich creates a connection that transcends taste.A larger thought structure becomes apparent as one tries all the candies, which deals with cultural and sociopolitical subjects such as blasphemy, vanity, martyrdom, consumerism and circumcision.

Excerpt from the exhibition text:

Eroglu employs curatorial decisions as well as artistic imagination to create a sensorial experience through the symbiosis of thoughts and flavours. By merging taste and visual components, he has developed a “language of sweets” that formulates questions of an abstract and critical sort. Trick or Treat is an ambiguous entanglement of writing, curating and various gastronomical endeavours.
