French-born artist Aude Moreau lives and works in Montreal. Her installation piece  titled Sugar Carpet (Tapis de sucre) is made with two tons of refined white sugar spread out evenly across the floor in a carpet-like manner embellished with Persian rug motifs in activated charcoal and food coloring. Moreau plays with the idea of ‘refined’ both in the production of the sugar and its selection process, as well as describing a sophistication that the carpet represents.

The Sugar Carpet is presently on view at the Smack Mellon gallery in Brooklyn through February 24th.
