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.

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.

Our Parsley Plant Died…

…and it got us thinking: “We can’t be the only people struggling to live together in a cheap apartment, trying to make ends meet, and doing things like saving on groceries and fixing the scary evil garbage disposal all on our own, all the while making mistakes and learning how to live like real grown-ups.” Our hope, therefore, is that this blog will assist those who find themselves in a position like ours- young, naive people who need to know things like these:

  • How to live comfortably, i.e. NOT: in your parents’ basement/in your friend’s basement/in a cardboard box/in a slightly more upscale plastic box under a bridge downtown/etc.
  • How to cook food for yourselves. (Kind of.)
  • How to keep aforementioned parsley plants, garbage disposals (and incidentally ourselves) healthy.
  • How to have something resembling a balanced budget.
  • How to pay bills. (bleh.)
  • How to plan a wedding. (Your tastes may vary.)
  • How to do all of these things with no money.
  • How to get money when you don’t have any.
  • How to not drive each other insane, and how to fix it when you do.
  • How to, ultimately, be young, poor and strangely happy.

To be perfectly frank, trying to manage all these things at once is terrifying.

But we’re all in this together.

Wish us luck.
