The Gate of Woodoo

Yummy Industries is an artistic duo based in Basel; YI maintains an adaptive identity, holds a post-ironic stance and measures its achievements by the quality of emotions generated. YI is exploring and defining the fine line between science and nonsense.

 

For VOLTA4 in Basel, 2008, the duo raised "the gate of woodoo" at the main entrance; the wood elements of the gate have been used by many people in many tasks for many years and are now given a final purpose as sacrificial vessel for visitors to cast a spell.
