PANE is a kind of food full of calories and it comes in several types according with your tastes and urgencies, always with carbs. Now it seems to exists low-carb, but the difference is not remarkable. It is like a fake one.
What is bread without carbohydrates?
There are many kinds of bread, I like the one with 00 flour. But they say it is bad for health.
So how can the carbohydrates be eliminated? Does a machine for that exist? I want to see it. I want to see what is inside it, proteins instead of air I guess.

PANE is bread, PANE is primary, PANE feeds, PANE crumbles, PANE is an artists run project based in Milan. PANE is an artists run project based in Milan, initiated in 2016 by Lucia Leuci.

Monia Ben Hamouda, Milano 1991.

”Il mio tentativo è quello di creare oggetti che riflettano o contengano esperienze legate al sentimento di amore come archetipo. Come ricevere un messaggio da chi ami, quasi alla fine della vostra storia, quasi esanime: ” Ti prego non bloccarmi. Ti amo. Mi importa di te.”
All’interno di uno scenario di collisione di elementi contrastanti, cerco di descrivere la persistente astrazione e il complesso simbolismo dei sentimenti umani.
Sono interessata alla potenza di alcune immagini, o meglio a immagini che contengono una perdita di potenza.
La Passività descrive qualcosa che una volta si è manifestato: il mio lavora porta dentro sé questa parola, ma più che passivo, è passivo-aggressivo.
Arrendevole ma pronto ad attaccarti. Ambiguo, immobile, rabbioso. ”

Monia Ben Hamouda, Milan 1991.
” I’m trying to create objects related to experiencing love. To bring the emotions that you can feel when you receive a text from your lover, almost at the end of your story, almost broken: “Please do not blacklist me. I love you. I care about you.”
In the collision of contrasting elements, I’m trying to expose the persistent strangeness and complex symbolism of human feelings.
I’m interested in the power of some images, or rather in images that contain a loss of power.
Passivity is something that once was manifested: my work brings inside itself this word, but more than passive, it’s passive-aggressive. Yielding but ready to attack you. Ambiguous, laying, angry. ”
