SOMETHING I ATE is a collaborative food + art project between Sam Kim of Skimkim Foods and Kat Popiel of On Plate, Still Hungry. Creative minds converge for this event with food being the principle medium. Presented at Rouge58 Gallery in Williamsburg, artists will document seven days of their personal eating experience from zero to x “meals” a day, culminating in exclusive works using whichever media they prefer – photo, paint, jewelry, fashion, film, music, etc. The idea is that from food, we derive pleasure, satisfaction, energy and inspiration (or vice versa) and these elements, whether cognizant of them or not, ignite our creative fires. Something I Ate intends to share various artists’ true perception of food and sustenance in everyday life.
Following final submissions of the exclusive works, each artist will pinpoint a defining meal, ingredient, or experience and Sam Kim of Skimkim Foods will present her seasonal, local interpretation including a pairing of cocktails by Kanon Vodka. Both will be served to ticketed guests on opening night Friday April 29 (7-10pm). The exhibit, co-curated by Joann Kim of Greenpoint Open Studios, will remain on show until May 1st.
Participating artists include: Alessandro Simonetti, Kareem Black, Slutlust, Gastronomista, Phil Knott, Briana Heard, Edgartista, Jason McKoy (Shadowplastic), Michael Greenberg, Aerosyn Lex, Jesse Untract-Oakner and Brian Hubble. Special guests and renowned food architects, Bompas & Parr, in town from London to promote their book, will be creating a surprise site-specific installation in the backyard of Rouge 58.
Music will be provided by Skimkim and the CGN Collective.
