In the visual arts, sugar can be used as a playful vehicle to express and explore serious issues.

Curated by Megan Fizell, this is a 10-woman show where all the works are created using sugar, many taking the shape of other "non-serious" art forms - cakes, jewellery, flower-arranging and cameos. The works themselves are mostly conceptual pieces that play on the idea of transience, value and permanence, given their limited shelf life. ...more
