THE BREAD HOUSE
The Bread House is a net art project by Gandolfo G. David, curated by Dimora Oz inviting participants to create symbols of good wishes and rebirth made of bread. The creations will be documented and shared on social networks using the hasthag #lacasadelpaneweb. The bread is a metaphor for life, whose sharing goes beyond the limits of our temporary isolation, setting a large virtual community.
Over the years and throughout its various editions, the Bread House has been figured out as an itinerant art device aggregating people through workshops focused on bread-making. The project has expressed the symbols related to various cultures and religions through bread in a syncretic dimension capable of achieve moments of effective sharing.
The Bread House's journey began in Sicily, in Salemi, a small town known for the bread altars. It has reached several cities and has been hosted by several museums and foundations, including the Museo Riso of Palermo, the Sandretto R. R. Foundation of Turin and the Mucem of Marseilles.
