GIRLS GERMS. BOYS GERMS.
On Saturday, June 13th, I was in an art exhibition entitled, “GIRLS VS BOYS” at The Camp in Costa Mesa, California. The exhibition featured four boys & four girls… A battle to the death!
For my installation I explored the age-old battle between men and women, by looking back at the innocent days as a child. Things were simple when all you needed to do is tease the boy (or girl) that you liked, in the hopes that they would notice you. It was a time when love is not understood, but innately, something you desired. There was no stress about meeting the parents, dating obligations, or awkward sexual encounters, just the simplicity of love and adoration.
“Boys Germs. Girls Germs. Nah nah nah nah nah!” is an interactive display, encouraging people to revisit these simple words of torment and love.
The Gallery is open this week. So swing by and check out some of the art work by Element Eden Advocates; Juliana Neufeld, Brooke Reidt, Lisa Solberg, and moi. The boys germs team included Jason Lee Parry, Corey Smith, Gareth Stehr, and Noah + Nathan Rice from The Comune.
