“Eat Me!" is a digital exhibition of sculptures by Finnish artists Toni Kitti and Manchester-based Pippa Eason, shown together for the first time. Click here to view!

Bright and colourful, Kitti’s objects look industrially designed, whereas Eason’s are as casual as if a child had stacked-up leftover food items on a dinner plate. Both, however, populate households at the turn of the millennium. Consumption brings the two closer, but Kitti’s work is heavy with the sinister connotations of plastic whilst Eason’s is light with the innocence of candy — of puffy pinks and jelly twists. “Eat me!” they all shout, and it comes as a surprise how we want to bite into a lamp as much as, say, a marshmallow. 

Pippa Eason’s (b. 1993) is a contemporary artist, based in Manchester. Her work makes observations of performative online gestures through sculpture, digital drawings, GIFs, and collages. Her practice co-opts the crispness of advertising but with a hand-crafted touch, used to hint at status anxiety, smartphone addiction, and meme culture. Her sculpture is ambiguous, though aims to pick up on - and visually start to un-pick - trends in art, fashion and pop culture.

Toni Kitti (b.1975) is an artist based in Helsinki, Finland. Having studied a Master of Arts in Photography at Aalto University, he now also works with video and installations. His practice is based on a love for plastic, and deals with questions of life, death, joy, shame and survival. In 2012 he got diagnosed with AIDS, and this has been an important theme in his work. His first solo show, “The Persistence of Plastic”, took place in 2017 in Helsinki. He has participated in group exhibitions in Finland and abroad, as well as receiving a grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation for his work.
