The Prize

"Orsetto gommoso" - 2018

  • Paraffin, beeswax
  • 17x7x9 cm

The small sculptural work represents a common gummy bear-shaped candy. Its realization in layers of paraffin and pigmented beeswax, and its oversizing, make it particularly similar to the ancient votive statues in stone or amber that were consecrated to animal idols. The image of the bear thus embodies a transmigration of sense that transcends time, consecrating a common object such as candy in the prehistory of human culture.

Giorgio Brina (1993, Milan) and Simone Novara (1994, Milan) start collaborating in 2017, year in which they founded bn +.
