trophyTurkey-shaped Jell-O® Mold: 2010 Competition

Gobble-Pop
Following Jasper Johns' dictum, Jones takes the turkey and "does something to it", ultimately effecting a masterful transformation that—like Johns—seemingly effortlessly addresses Americana and object-hood in one unimpeachable statement. Encaustic-like in its encasing, the Gobble-pop is a delirious concoction of creamy vanilla with a seductive skin of chocolate, slyly referencing the genre of country fair food-on-a-stick with humble hyperbole while elevating the commonplace to an aesthetic platform like no other.

Turcakes
A syrupy semiotic statement that reminds us of the arbitrary relationship between the slippery, butter-covered layers of signification, Stern + Mertz's proposition leads us to the classic indigestion of post-structuralist sticky inconclusiveness, while reminding us of the inevitable re-appropriation inherent in artistic production.

Mom's Noodle Kugel
Almost Warholian in its multiple reproduction, the kugel establishes its cultural iconicity through mimesis, enacting the passage from old to new world means of production and consumption. In making this transition from "original" to multiple, the kugel turkeys also enact the lack implicit in the symbolic order, and the attendant loss of the (m)other—Lacan's objet petit a, if you will. Or even if you won't.
