Chocolate Wallpaper Turns Gallery Visitors Into Gluttons [Video]
Artist Anya Gallaccio's newest installation brings a Willy Wonka fantasy to life.
This summer, Edinburgh’s sculpture garden will host “Stroke,” an installation from artist Anya Gallaccio’s installation that is both enticing and sinister in its offering.
Gallaccio painted strokes of melted chocolate onto cardboard, and then installed it on the walls to create a space that is dark and sensual, with a hint of a creamy, chocolate scent. Like the first room in the tour of Willy Wonka’s factory, where the children are invited to taste anything they see, visitors to Stroke are allowed to touch, lick and yes, stroke the chocolate walls.
