“I’m Hungry” features a video installation that depicts a work-in-progress scenario and captures a ritual. In the video, garments or onesies, as the artist calls them, are ‘forms’ that act as an interface between obligation and desire. The onesies are produced from material salvaged from discarded mattresses and box springs. The significance of the material embraces nurturing, ownership and history, three distinct elements sewn into a side of negotiation with countless exchanges.
Hours are Sundays from 1:30 to 10 p.m.; Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
