“If sugar is to be considered a drug then Jan von Holleben’s photographs are images of a junkie.” – Simon Häuser
This work is part of Jan von Holleben’s new exhibition project SugarWOW, which was curated by Edda Fahrenhorst and commissioned for horizonte zingst 2022 in Germany.
In Jan’s own words:
“I was thrown into a huge pot of candy. One might even say: I was force-fed candy – mentally but also physically. And when I came out the other side EVERYTHING WAS CANDY TO ME: my friends, my home, my art, my food, my drinks, the news and generally my entire environment. What a trip. Uarrgh! A bit disgusting, right? And yet so sweet.”
