An art installation featuring six rooms of floor-to-ceiling cake sculptures will host pop-up dinners, speakeasies and live performances for 30 days starting this Saturday.
The immersive installation, known as Break Bread, is the work of artist and Banksy collaborator Scott Hove along with Keith Magruder, aka Baker’s Son. It will take place at downtown L.A.’s Think Tank Art Gallery. The 9,000 square foot space will feature elaborate cake chambers and sculptures, tech-based mirror mazes, and a life-size ice cream truck peddling products made of hyperrealistic watercolors. Far from entirely sweet, many of Hove’s cake sculptures feature dark elements like fake animal teeth and switchblades nestled in the fluffy frosting. There will also be a pop-up Stumptown coffee shop and lounge themed for Zumanity, Cirque Du Soleil’s erotic show.
