PIP&POP: Sweetened smack

I remember myself when I was a kid; glued to the TV screen like a raver hugging a baffle, drooling and with my eyeballs out of their place. I remember how I would expose myself to a constant advertising bombarding, being overwhelmed by Nintendos, Micho Machines, dogs that would poop and dolls that would cry so loud that would turn my heartbeat into “rat heart” level rhythm. The ones I remember the most are those “My Little Pony” and “Care Bear” ads, so full of cute cheesy images, happy tunes and fluor colours that, just after watching them, they made you feel as if you had eaten 2kg of sugar. Just remembering them makes me want to bite a lemon.

That candyfloss taste comes back to life when watching Tanya Schultz’s work, who, under the name of Pip&Pop creates installations using glitter, plastic flowers, sugar or sweets. No one can stay the same after such a smack of aggressive cheesiness.
