A lot of you guys love Jaimie Warren (and if you don't, you should start). But many people have come to me and said, "I love Jaimie Warren. Her work is the perfect amount of crazy and brilliant and gross and sublime. I, however, do not live in or around the beautiful metropolitan area of Kansas City, Missouri, where Jaimie is based. Rather, I live among the hordes in slovenly New York City. Oh, how I wish upon dream that I could one day experience Jaimie's work before my own eyes, in the plastic flesh."
Never fear, person I made up! Jaimie is packing up her sweets-dispensing blob suit (not sure how she fit it on the plane, but she did it!) and taking her talents to lower Manhattan. Tomorrow, January 10, Jaimie opens her new show, The Whoas of Female Tragedy II, at the Hole on the Bowery in Manhattan. Her hilarious and clever recreations of internet memes, some of which you already saw gracing the pages of VICE, show why Jaimie is described as a "digital age, Midwestern Cindy Sherman." To top it all off, Jaimie will be live, in the house, in her famous blob costume, created by Matt Roche and Lee Heinemann, who also helped Jaimie with much of her props and sets in the show.
Go to the show! Seriously, just go. Go to the show. Do it. Go.
