Artist Peter Anton is putting food on a serious pedestal at NYC’s UNIX Gallery, now through May 9. “Foodhist Temple” is an installation made up of realistic-looking, large-scale sculptures of cake, sushi, pizza, donuts and even a strip of bacon. As visitors enter the gallery, they are asked to remove their shoes; kneeling pillows are placed on the floor around the artwork. “The temple will be a place of meditation, peace, and happiness — a shrine devoted to the celebration of food and life,” Anton says in the show’s press release. Check out more photos from the installation below, and if you’re in NYC or will be soon, go to the gallery and bow down to food.
