CONCEPT

“I was particularly inspired by Taiwan’s current landmark judgment, with the constitutional court ruling for allowing same-sex marriage, a beautiful example that reflects how attitudes can change and settings can be re-defined.”

Series 1 (Culturescape)
2017
10 x 18 ice cream cones, mounted on a white foam board.
0.85m x 1.30m
Showcased at the family’s ice cream parlour “Udo’s Eisparadies” in Tirol, Austria.

The ice cream cones are by Konrad Otto GmbH (Ø / L (mm) 53/120), and I hand painted them with Edding acrylic paint in rainbow colours (9 in total). One cone is golden; it is the one that got away. "The ice cream cones are simply the ones that are used by my family, and they do carry my grandfather's name "Otto", who also made ice cream all his life."

London-based artist Alexandra Plesner has created a new installation to mark a ruling in Taiwan allowing same-sex marriage.
