Fat Free Art presents HUNGRY, a special two-day only exhibition that will transform Fat Free’s gallery into a visceral multimedia experience that explores the complexities of desire.

About

Video artist Kelsey S Brewer presents a new body of films accompanied by sculptural works and an opening night performance piece. Acclaimed New York artist Jeremy Penn joins her with mirrors, text and vintage erotica to create a sense of interactivity within the immersive environment; the collective effect is a powerfully seductive show.

Desire for the unattainable propels the show, creating a tense, erotic atmosphere that’s equal parts pleasurable and painful. The visceral sound and imagery of the films is paired with a feeling of mounting tension, drawing viewers into the subject’s experience. From this vantage point, the deeper issues at play are exposed - desperate frustration with societal judgment, censorship, and control are answered by an equally urgent desire for freedom and release. The inherent voyeurism of viewership is literally mirrored and put under a lens in order to reveal our simultaneous status as observers and the observed. HUNGRY offers a raw, honest portrayal of our desperate emotional, sexual, social and cultural hunger for something we may never have. 

HUNGRY opens July 27th with a live performance by conceptual artist Ventiko and runs through the 28th. In conjunction with the exhibition Kelsey S Brewer will host HI CALORIE, an intimate screening event at her studio (The 1896) with questions answered by the artist.
