Jeff Foye and Gordon Winiemko create situations wherein an audience will reflect on their participatory role in the ever-changing cultural narrative; every one of us contributes to our collective culture, but at the same time we are all defined by culture. As such, their work frequently “takes on” the form of familiar social customs and iconography, and also enters into a dialogue with the site or the context in which the work is exhibited. The artists also forward their personae, and frequently mediate their performative actions through video, as informed by the cinematic aesthetic. The artists live and work in the Los Angeles area. jeffandgordon.net

charlene tan: happymeal


Happymeal
paper sculpture with box and tag
$40

As a child of immigrants, assimilating and culture shock come naturally as breathing. Accepting and having the American taste for fast food came as a hallmark of socio-economic assimilation, a badge of honor. An example of this “badge of honor” can be found in the “Happymeal” marketed to children by offering toys and junk food.
