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.”
