Mauro Perucchetti said:

“12 years ago I created a body of work inspired by the dilemma between cloning and religion, and cloning and medical ethics. I decided to use the jelly baby as an impersonation of cloned mankind. I was trying to capture the ambiguity that could be present in a cloned being. On first glance, they seem very sweet, but from certain angles, they can look slightly sinister, especially on a large scale.

In the current version, ‘Jelly Baby Family 2010’, they could easily embody the unity of family and the multicultural aspect of modern society that is so prevalent, especially in London.

I am absolutely privileged and delighted that they will go in such a prominent position, and being opposite Speaker’s Corner gives them a particularly symbolic value.”
