Rage Grief Comfort &

When Spatula&Barcode were invited to participate in the Municipal show, we knew immediately that we wanted to create a project about responses to the election.  The resulting project, “Rage Grief Comfort &” used simple foods to allow the public to express emotions and then asked the question, besides being angry and fearful, what else can we do.A bit of context about the exhibition. Staged for one day in a soon-to-be-remodeled city building, Municipal offered 100 artists the chance to create site-specific installations that were available to the public for one day only. 2,700 people walked through the front doors in spite of the raging snow storm.

Our project  for Municipal “Rage Grief Comfort &” invited public participation at four stations.  At the first, spectators had the opportunity to throw ripe tomatoes at the wall.
