This event has ended.

Cagol focuses his investigation on toxic additives that pervade both toys and food by interpreting them as a symbol of our human fragility and exposing how they influence, compel and deceive us.

In numerous ways, Cagol recapitulates our current state of dissatisfaction with the natural essence of things and our increasing coercion to crave a heightened intensity through ubiquitous food and toy additives… He exploits two very basic activities – that of eating and playing - to prove that we are all unwitting GUINEA PIGs of a globally extended lab that is constantly experimenting with our lives.
