This elegant wooden box opens up to reveal a burst of color and an intriguing surprise: teeth and ears with pieces of furniture and articles of clothing. Sweet Tooth takes Pondick’s famous Little Bathers (1990–91) to a whole new dimension, creating rubber “sweets” in a lavish and unexpectedly enticing setting. Known for her provocative sculptures and installations that are simultaneously hilarious and horrific, Pondick combines dissonant fragments of bodies to make pre-verbal, visceral meanings.
