2021, cherry wood, dough, metal cart
This oversized cookie project is one of the results of my research in the craft of cookie board cutting and the possibilities of storytelling with dough. This text based cookie (and board) functions as a concrete poetry piece, changing meaning as it is being eaten.

For this cookie a local bakery is selected and asked to use their family’s secret ‘speculaas’ recipe. The cookie is presented and distributed in a homemade, mobile cookie cart.


In his interdisciplinary practice, Ignace Cami (°1986, BE) takes folk culture as a starting point to make objects, sculptures, installations and writings. He thereby activates the contemporary meaning of local history.

Trained as a printmaker and sculptor, Cami started moving towards more active and social ways of distributing his projects. Each project creates a new platform for social interaction. By emphasizing familiarity in his own tender and playful way, he pushes the boundaries of performativity and storytelling.


He also ran the artist run CRYING space with Ward Zwart and is a part of collaborative projects like Haas & Gaai, Boris & Kitchenknife and Nestvlieders.
