Chloe Wise is a dynamic Canadian artist who is currently displaying a delectable take on high fashion at Montreal's Division Gallery. The series, titled 'Pissing, Shmoozing, and Looking Away,' is a carbohydrate-heavy recreation of some of fashion's most recognizable iconic purses from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Prada and Gucci.

From a Chanel bag made from layered pancakes to a cinnamon bun Saint Laurent purse, this seemingly edible collection is a powerful statement on consumerism and the relationship between empty calories and luxury.

Chloe Wise oftens works in a variety of mediums and found inspiration for the title of this particular exhibition, on display in Montreal until May 2, 2015, in Queer Theorist Lauren Berlant’s essay 'Two Girls, Fat and Thin.'
