Couscous

FullSizeRender-113Untitled (Ghardaïa) 2009 // Kader Attia // Cooked couscous on wooden table and digital prints on paper

Hmm. What type of model is this? Is it made out of sand? No. Oh my goodness it is made out of cooked couscous! An edible work of art except you can’t eat it. Artist Kader Attia uses couscous to create a model of the city Ghardaïa in Algeria as couscous is one of the main foods in this North African city.
