Emerging Columbus Artist Breaks from Convention (and Sanitation)

Working under the name “Bingley”, young artist Froderich H. forayed into post-modern deconstructionalism this morning with the opening of her new installation, Papier.

Bingley has a tendency toward using more flexible and chewable substances as a medium. Previous work with these materials include What is carpet for? (A daring neo-conceptual piece wherein carpet becomes comestible), and Kittypoop Sports, an interactive exhibit.

Though it has no particular focal point, the only use of color in the piece is found on the knocked-over trashcan, salvaged from the artist’s apartment.

When asked by YPH representatives if the irony of using adhesives formed from her own body to attach pieces of material commonly used for sanitary processes was intentional, the artist regarded them silently with a blank, disdainful stare (pictured above).

This newest installation is not without a sonic element- the artist herself had a hand in its marketing, announcing its completion by dancing around, very early in the morning, saying,

“Mow mow mow mow mow MMMRRRRRROOOOOOOOOWWWW MROW MROW MROW MROW.”

Other images of the work can be seen below.

We Made Art

Want to do something fun?

Grab some wine and canvas and put a tarp over your kitchen table.

Then paint some stuff.

And drink some wine.

We found it to be very relaxing.

Wave-o’s Ranch Arrows

Ever had an extreme craving for Mexican food?

ALL THE TIME?

Yeah, us too.

This Huevos Rancheros recipe is our adaptation of the one found at COOKIE+kate.

Because J has never successfully followed a recipe all the way through, and claims that he’s not about to start now.

Before you begin cooking, make sure you know how to fry eggs.

If not, marry someone who does.

That usually works for him.

 

Huevos Rancheros

100_1032

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • half an onion, chopped
  • chili powder, cumin
  • half a lime
  • 1/2 cup of salsa verde
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • handful of cilantro (fresh or dry)
  • 1 clove of garlic (or a teeny spoonful of the jarred stuff)
  • corn tortillas (1 per serving)
  • eggs (1 per serving)
  • Feta cheese
  • hot sauce (we used Sriracha)

WHAT TO DO:

1. Saute the beans, onion, chili powder, and cumin with about 1/4 of a cup of water. If the mixture looks a little dry during cooking, you can add some more water.

2. Once the onions are translucent, let the pot simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. Mash some of the beans with a spoon (or whatever you’re using to stir) and remove it from the heat, still covered.

J also tossed a couple of Hershey Kisses into the pot. This was probably a bad idea, in retrospect, but everything turned out ok. L didn’t notice 🙂

3. Blend the salsa verde, avocado, garlic and juice from the lime.

4. Heat it on the stove on medium-low heat for a few minutes, and set aside on the stove, covered (you can also microwave it).

5. Fry (or scramble, if you like) the eggs in a large skillet.

TOTS TOTS TOTS TOTS (THE TATER TYPE)

Our Grandmas both used to make this casserole. We ate it and it tasted like home.

Not literally, like we were eating bits of our house or something.

Just tasted homey, my homies.

Bingley always sits on the counter and supervises when we cook.
