This work stems from the early years of the Icelandic Love Corporation. The video is a recording of a performance where the artist collective worked with live sculptures, and it is accompanied by four photographs of the completed sculptures. The naked female body is the basis of the four, elaborately decorated cakes, with whipped cream, chocolate, pink icing, and savoury mayo and bread. The recurring objectification of the female form in service to art is addressed here in a humorous yet critical way. Another strong motif from the history of art, the reminder of mortality, is also at play.
