Jaimie Warren is a Large, Soft, Pink Blob That Dispenses Sweets
Sep 7 2012
Yesterday, we told you all to get excited because our good friend, the amazing artist Jaimie Warren, was opening her new exhibition, The WHOAS of Female Tragedy, at the Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design. Well, by the looks of these photos, the show went smashingly. Have you ever been to a gallery opening and found yourself a little let down by the free food spread of carrots, dip, and little cheese cubes? Well, that doesn't happen at a Jaimie Warren show. I can't even begin to explain what's going on, so I'll let Jaimie do it:
“My costume was a farty, oozy, nasty blob you could eat food off of! This was designed by Matt Roche and Lee Heinemann. I also had several secret holes and flaps where you could get amazing desserts, dip things in chocolate at the chocolate fountain flap, and a new invention we made up called ‘chocolate slammers.’ If you got sticky fingers, you could get moist towelettes at my back door.”
Everyone loved it, including this little girl in the video below (though that what I might be seeing as delight could also be a deep emotional scarring happening in real time). Way to go, Jaimie!
