I NEVER SAID I DIDN’T LIKE YOU
I never said I didn’t like you is a mixed-media installation commissioned by the Jerome Foundation as part of the Art Inside/ Outside Space Program at Intermedia Arts, Minneapolis. 11 life-size, hand-sewn bears dressed in camouflage fleece outfits sit inside a large tent pitched in the gallery space. They are watching television, specifically the local PBS broadcast. Monitors in the gallery space detail the TV schedule for the duration of the show. Brown astroturf covers the floor. The gallery space is painted in two shades of green to match the tent. A lone bear dressed in two-tone green sits behind the tent, camouflaged to both the tent and the walls.
