It's been a massively busy week getting all the final touches ready for my upcoming show. 100 jars have been filled with various goodies, 4 nude suits hand-sewed, shelves built, signs made, packaging designed and applied. But I wouldn't have been able to do any of this without help. Special thanks to my mammals-in-crime for helping to make this happen - Michael T. Hensley, Chelsea Clark-James, Arielle Adkin, Gabe Blair, Justin Oswald and Donnie the goat, the brothers and sister at Place, Kim from Kim's creations and her strange Vietnamese friend Richard and Linnton Feed and Seed, Here is a bit about the show:
Roger Peet and Ryan Burns Viande de Brousse (a bushmeat food cart) is a small food cart that superficially resembles a peripatetic roadside attraction of Sub-Saharan Africa. In urban centers throughout the region, and indeed throughout the less-developed world, enterprising individuals can generate a living with little more than a pot, some supplies, and a few raw ingredients - all transported within a simple wooden framework. A small cooking range, a folding counter, and a tarpaulin are assembled together to make a self-contained mobile bistro for cooking simple dishes. The food cart is built and decorated in functional and festive style; however, it serves an unorthodox and unsettling food item: the hands of our fellow primates. www.viandedebrousse.com/ Roger Peet is an artist and printmaker living in Portland. He is a member of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, a group of North American artists making socially and environmentally engaging art. Ryan Burns is Portland-based artist represented by Barristers Gallery in New Orleans and Augen Gallery in Portland.
