To Bring a Sheep to Consciousness We Must Eat It Therefore to Bring Virginia Woolf to Consciousness We Must Eat Her

Bobby Baker sculpture and performance

New Contemporaries, Camden Arts Centre, London

Taking its cue from a Sufi proverb and made in tribute to Virginia Woolf, this edible artwork took the form of a seated life-size figure assembled from 1080 buns decorated with marzipan. It was installed for the opening of the exhibition New Contemporaries, where Bobby Baker served up slices to visitors. As the buns were dismantled it gradually revealed bookshelves and ornaments.
