EDIBLE ART EXHIBITION


As a visionary, artist, author, culinary stylist and photographer, Janice Wong’s philosophy is a continuous inspiration for her world of edible art. In September 2011, she fashioned seven amazing edible art installations that completely transformed the studio space: with edible items as her only tools, Janice conceptualized and designed edible installations such as marshmallow ceilings and gumdrop-covered walls. She has since been commissioned by galleries, restaurants and clients both locally and overseas to craft interactive art. Playing with a multitude of colours, textures, flavours and even perceptions, her strikingly unconventional artworks are constantly evolving as people interact with them. Her ideas are threaded by a commonality: a pursuit for perfection in imperfection, and an appreciation of imperfection in perfection, presenting an artistic, gastronomic world of flawless imperfection and flawed perfection.
Such is the beauty of art and Janice Wong’s creations.
 
UNDERWATER LABYRINTH
2011
Singapore

Janice Wong and French Artist Loic Serot were invited by the Russia-Singapore Business Forum to design and conceptualize an idea exclusively for their annual forum held during the Formula One season in Singapore. Following extensive research, they drew their inspiration from F1 driver Alberto Ascari who drove a Lancia D50 into the sea back in 1955. An underwater-themed exhibition was created at the Sands SkyPark of Marina Bay Sands, where a whopping 1,100 kg of isomalt sugar was used for the installation. Seven canapés inspired by the flavors of the sea, such as bonito macarons, wakame truffles and seaweed marshmallows, were served on beds of vibrantly hued sugar isomalt “corals” representing the corals residing deep beneath pristine waters. The duo also constructed the Lancia D50 to commemorate the final day of the F1 race.

 What are some unusual materials you have used to make art?  
Guess what this wondrous seascape is made of?  
The sparkling corals have been crafted from 1,100 kilograms of Isomalt sugar and 200kgs of chocolate. That's a lot of sweets! Artist-chef Janice Wong has used her exquisite dessert-making skills to construct these astounding coral reefs, which fill the gallery space and encrust its walls. Do be careful around this work though – art, like our coral reefs, needs to be preserved for all to enjoy.

SHADOW OF WHITE
December 2013
Art Basel, Astoria Hotel, Miami
What is black? What is White? What are colours? What is beauty? Without preconceived notions, we can see the white in black, beauty in the grotesque, infinity in finiteness. Inspired by the purity of the colour white, Janice employs the perfect circular form of 600 white chocolate spheres in varying sizes and artfully places them together on three walls to create perfection in imperfection. Through this wonderfully minimal installation, she encourages the viewer to reexamine his/her perception of white through the contrast between shadows and light, highlighting the beauty and simplicity of white as both a colour and a concept.
