Everything that is created comes from a collective.
INCEPTION demonstrates a reframing of the notion of creation and authorship in an exhibition where 111 of the world’s most remarkable architects have sequentially contributed artworks, each inspired by the preceding work. This experimental exhibit by Anna Bates, a founder of Make Make (NYC) will premiere in the Spring of 2023 in New York.

What’s coming?

This time we emphasize the importance of low environmental impact of art and will present 111 works printed directly on sugar building blocks developed uniquelly for this exhibition. An immersive experience complimented with light and sound — all circling around the subject of inspiration.

A chain of collective works printed on sugar as a nod to the fragility of inspiration and ideas.
4 tonnes of sugar melted into 1111 building blocks that were developed during a lengthy experimental phase. After the exhibition, no waste is produced and sugar blocks will be effectively reused for other projects.
