Chocolate by Martynka Wawrzyniak
In response to San Francisco’s beautiful weather I wanted to remind everyone to take in the sun.
“An intoxicating 9 minutes and 22 seconds video art piece.�Martynka Wawrzyniak, who has been known to make these strong visual treatments, lets chocolate be poured on her whilst remaining submissively still for nearly 10 minutes.
The Polish-born, NYC-based artist currently has work at the The Garage Center for Contemporary Culture.” purpleTELEVISION

The first time I viewed it I didn’t want it to be chocolate but it is playful enough that you can still watch it.
I’m very glad it’s called chocolate and not oil. Or, if screened in black and white, blood.
And watching this, I can smell the syrup.
