Missirkov / Bogdanov recreate the most popular symbol of Plovdiv’s recent history – the Alyosha Monument – in a playful object. The heroic past meets the consumerism of today’s society, the history is melting in the mouth in a colourful and direct consummation.
The sugar carbohydrates deliver a fast doze of energy, but for a short time; on the next day there is no memory of the souvenir. The lollipops are available in various colours and tastes.
