We've all seen some pretty spectacular art installations.
Remember when we showed you the artist who transforms normal floors into scenes straight out of Candy Land?
Well, if the sight of that made you hungry, just wait: You haven't seen anything yet.
Recently, Scott Hove teamed up with fellow artist Keith Magruder, AKA Baker's Son, to create an insane exhibit at Think Tank Gallery in Los Angeles called "Break Bread" that really takes the cake.
No, I'm serious, this thing is basically a 7,000-square-foot maze made entirely out of cake.
The exhibit consists of a sprawling six-room maze filled with all kinds of sweet sculptures and candied artwork that will make you feel like you're walking through Willy Wonka's private residence.
Amidst the towering treats, you'll also find things like sugar-coated guns and cake-clad, razor-sharp teeth that add a dark twist to the message buried within this frosted fantasyland.
Hove told Los Angeles Times,
There's a dualistic element to all this -- the aggressiveness, the potential for violence, then it starts telling a story that people can relate to.
As we're striving for celebration in our lives, there are a lot of obstacles that are not pleasant. As we're sipping champagne at a party, there are people in Syria getting massacred -- and that needs to be reflected in art. We tried to bring the two together, the dark and the light.
Take a look at the pictures below to see this amazing cake installation.
If you've ever dreamed of visiting Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory IRL, you might want to pay attention.
For their latest project, Break Bread, artists Scott Hove and Keith Magruder, AKA Baker's Son, set out to transform Think Tank Gallery in Los Angeles...
...into an epic 7,000-square-foot maze made out of cake!
Yes, you read that correctly. You can now immerse yourself in a gigantic room made of cake.
Within the frosted walls of this six-room exhibit, you'll find all sorts of colossal confections...
And decadent, dessert-filled decor...
...that's complete with "chandeliers" dripping in glittery gumdrops.
Even the damn ceiling is decked out in cake. I mean, really, what more could you want in life?
Plus, there's an ice cream truck where you can scoop up a sweet watercolor painting souvenir.
However, this exhibit isn't solely sugar, spice and everything nice.
The artists also send a deeper message by incorporating some dark elements into the designs...
Like a variety of vicious, teeth-baring baked goods...
...and some sugar-coated guns that serve as a reminder to make dessert, not war.
Hove told This Is Colossal, “To contrast that bougie cake look, I collect items that have an inherent violence, but beauty at the same time..."
"...that's why I choose things like switchblades, wolf jaws and leopard jaws. Even though they are plastic, they possess a real fierce quality that affects us on a very deep level.”
According to Hove, "We tried to bring the two together, the dark and the light.”
If you're looking to get in on the action, the Break Bread exhibit will be open until March 13.
