SING'S MILLENNIUM MART

@Interstate Projects Dec 13, 2014 -Feb 1, 2015  An immersive installation of a post-apocalyptic deli that also served as a performance venue for site-specific artist's projects.  

 
 

From Martha Schwendener of the New York Times  “Ms. Lee’s is a humorous, sometimes political, sometimes poetic take on the minimart. (And it’s in a gallery basement rather than a storefront.) There are vacuum­ sealed packages of homemade kimchi kale chips and candy made with herbal concoctions; eerily colored tapioca balls (for bubble tea) and nutritional capsules filled with glitter and ginkgo biloba. A wall of edible plants growing in plastic bottles, conceived in collaboration with Simone Frazier, provides a living salad bar. Water bottles filled with tap water brought in from Detroit are being sold to fund the Detroit Water Project, which helps pay the overdue utility bills of Detroit residents facing water shut­offs. Contributions by Jonathan Butt, Arkadiy Ryabin, Mores McWreath, Amanda Turner Pohan and others include a poetry chapbook, vegetables cast in concrete and benches built like fruit stand shelves.”
