With bread we explore stories of sex and death, immigration and refugees, social justice and the counter-culture, and of art, work and pleasure. Love it or hate it, everyone has a relationship with bread. This simple staple food is brought to life by the wild energy of yeast, perhaps our first companion animal, and is a metaphor of transformation that mirrors life itself. And it is the only metaphor you can eat.
