Significant Pleasures



An obvious attraction seems to emanate from the hibernating ice cream shop, once the lights are turned on. Passers-by, children, and adults try to catch a glimpse through the window to see if there still, or already is ice cream inside the counter.
We get it. This winter also makes us particularly impatient. We all need this ice cream more than ever. It almost becomes a signifier for the sensual and social pleasures we miss.
Since the shop is still closed, the artists Sophie Hundbiss and Robin Woern will help to stimulate your sensual memories of ice cream through an audio-visual installation.
The light composition in the ice cream counter serves as a reminder of the vivid colors of various ice cream flavors on display. The pulse of the light refers to the pleasurable sound of eating ice cream. It can be listened to from outside the shop via the QR-code.

We invite you to stop by for a moment and enjoy the illusions of summer, warmth and lightheartedness created by the installation. Follow the movements of the light and immerse into familiar sounds of eating ice-cream.
The show will be open from Friday, 22nd of January. For this installation opening hours will change. Windows will be open Thurs-Sun, 3-8pm.
