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.

To facilitate a blissful worship experience, pillows and rugs are scattered across the gallery/temple floor, so that devotees can comfortably prostrate themselves before the Food Idol of their choice. 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.

Eating and sleeping are right up there at the top of my list of Gail’s All Time Favorite Things To Do. So, if I can catch 40 winks in a bed-thing that looks like a piece of food, win-win! Sadly, one must be child sized to fit into this awesome sleeping bag shaped like a slice of pizza. The vegetable pillows are detachable, so you can cuddle with a broccoli floweret or a slice of rip olive, if that suits you. Designed, hand made and sold by B Fiber and Craft Emporium.
