Maurizio Savini Chewing Gum Sculpture

Check out these freaky sculptures by Maurizio Savini. They are all made with fibreglass and pink chewing gum. Mario Codognato wrote about his work:

"The sensual act of chewing, the voluptuous warmth of rebelling saliva, the artificial and secretly aseptic fragrance which spreads from the mouth as a promise and missed kiss. The synthetic fleshliness of the pink color, the obsessive square shape of the product unwrapped and ready to be shred to pieces by the power of the tongue, all compete in crashing on the senses. Applying all this to the power and energy of the Sculpture and its history causes a short circuit having the capacity of turning the ludic into stately and vice versa."

Ummmm, ooook...whatever you say Mario....

Many thanks again to Adriana Wong for the heads up!
