PASHMAK

A contribution to a show of Gino Saccone
8/11/2018 – 11/11/2018,  Independent Brussels,
On invitation of Mieke Verschaijk Gallery.

I translated a few of Gino’s works into my medium, as a swift way to get to know him a little, as a reflex, using materials that were near. A first acquaintance which soon derailed into a dive into:

DRAGON’S BEARD, COTTON CANDY, PASHMAK, PIŞMANIYE, KKULTAREA, FAIRY FLOSS, BARBE À PAPA, ALGÓDON DE AZÚCAR, SUHKRUVATT, VATTACUKOR, GULALI, ZUCCHERO FILATO, WATAKASHI, ALGODÓN DULCE, SOCKERVADD, WATA CUKROWA, SPOOK ASEM

It ended at Dondurma, a Turkish ice cream with a stretchy stickiness and resistance to melting, brought about by inclusion of the thickening agents salep – a flour made from the root of the early-purple orchid (Orchis mascula), and mastic – an aromatic resin obtained from the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus).
