For several years now, Ignace Cami has been training himself in the traditional cutting of outsized koekplanken [biscuit moulds] using text or image. Cami collaborates with local bakers who use their own, often secret, speculoos (a typical Belgian spiced biscuit) recipe to bake biscuits. The biscuit is then displayed and offered in a mobile biscuit cart. Biscuit moulds can be traced back to a pre-Christian ritual of offerings: gradually, the offering was replaced by its image baked in biscuit.
Haas is an ode to Ward Zwart.
