The most exciting thing about being a fan of Bacon is that, just when you think every possible way to consume Bacon has been presented, someone does something new and mind blowing with the meat candy of foods, and the love affair is reborn! Like, who thinks of wrapping Oreo cookies in Bacon and frying them up in a pan? I want to meet the person who invited Fried Bacon-Wrapped Oreos, and shake his or her hand.

Peter Anton’s The Foodhist Temple at Unix Gallery

Foodie-ism ascends to a higher plane at Peter Anton’s The Foodhist Temple, up now at Unix Gallery. For this sensorally-immersive exhibit, Unix has transformed itself into a red-walled sanctuary displaying objects of adoration in the form of larger-than life sculptures of decadent food items. A Cheeseburger Deluxe Platter, several brimming Boxes of Chocolates and a mammoth Chocolate Layer Cake on a Pedestal are among the righteous treats nestled amid a plush-carpeted shrine, complete with dimmed lighting, New Age mediation music, lit candles and fresh flowers. Visitors are asked to remove their shoes upon entering.

As an aside, the carpet feels amazing against street-weary stocking feet.

At The Foodhist Temple, Believers can relax, reflect, and achieve a heightened awareness of the importance of food and all of its pleasures.

The hyper-realist detail in these monumental sculptures — which Anton crafted using wood, metal, resin, clay, and both acrylic and oil paints — is extraordinary.

Of course, everyone goes to New York Fashion Week events for the Fashion, but they also go for the food. Repoproom and Storefront outdid themselves with their champagne brunch that accompanied a showcase of brands like Ilana Kohn clothing, Marrin Costello jewelry and Souda design-focused furniture. The highlight of their very satisfying spread was the above pictured plate of Candied Bacon Strips, which I hovered over for several minutes. Mmm, finger lickin’ good!
