Exhibited in: "Jessica Teckemeyer: Sensorium", 2010, Atwood Memorial Center, St. Cloud State.
This piece is an extension of the work created originally for my Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition. The interior of the orange glossy shell is a materialscape of fudge-like chocolate. Chocolate is one of the most revered substances on the planet and I’m interested in its sensual implications.
“Chocolate” was perceived and created toward the presence of the viewer. The pieces encourage the viewer to participate by looking through the eye-openings of the masks. The physical stance of the participant is controlled by the sculptures’ scale and installation. When the viewer interacts, the object becomes an extension of the individual’s body allowing others in the gallery to view the work in its most complete physical state. Interaction is a necessary component of the artwork.
