Garage 4141 Presents Anna Stump and F.I.G in the performance "Feeder"

The name FIG has several connotations that we like. Fig refers to the original name. It also conjures up images of censorship, as in fig leaf. Fig also refers to art historical textbooks, as in "refer to Fig 12.24."

FIG Presents Feeder

Performance and Installation

Opening Reception: April 14, 6-8pm

Garage 4141

4141 Alabama St., North Park, San Diego

Women are care-givers. Mothers, daughters, sisters, wives–we do the bulk of caring for others. We often look after the young, the sick, the elderly and the helpless. This performance celebrates nurturers, and explores notions of dependence, intimacy, sensuality and privacy in the act of nurturing. It recalls being fed as children, and uncomfortably harkens to a future when we may be spoon-fed as elders.

“Feeder” is a Relational Aesthetics performance work and installation in which FIG members serve food to guests and each other at the opening event. The performance develops out of the relationship between people in the intimate act of serving and eating. Wall pieces will also explore the idea of nurturing through food.

Free and open to the public. For more information:
