Bread and moths

From: Eugenia Stamatopoulou <stamatopoulou>

We are exhibiting a work of contemporary art made with bread. This
work is a large installation created by "real" bread. The bread has
been changed recently (some parts of it) with new bread made locally
(Athens). During the summer closure, even by having temperature
control inside the exhibition space, when the space re-opened, we
found an important number of dead moths around the space. However,
fumigation with chemicals is not acceptable by the artist since it
is important for him to keep the "bread" smell.

Moreover, it is impossible to move the work for some anoxia
treatment since this is 5 x 5 x 3 meters.In addition, this work is
actually on show. Any idea about how to block or/and respond to this
situation will be gratefully received.
