Le Peepe Show reconfigures marshmallow peeps and enables them to transcend their pre-candy state into distilled pop culture images integrating with an inner world populated with archetypes.

As Le Peepe Show consists of collectable, edible peeps, it seems so appropriate that they be stored in elaborately constructed wooden boxes. Collectable Carrying Cases . . . only $19.95 is suitable for storage and display. They give reference to musical instrument cases, optical scientific equipment cases from antiquity, and are vaguely suggestive of coffins, where ideas may be contained, or be given the sanctuary to enter a chrysalis state and transform. Imbued with sincerity and beauty, while at the same time, calling attention to the perverse and crass way art is packaged, framed, and represented, these wooden boxes walk a fine line.Le Peepe Showhas four exhibition platforms displaying edible Easter Peeps adorned in iconic costumes made from cloth and paper. Some of these characters come steeped in pop culture, while others are more personal – distilled from my childhood memory.

My past installation work was also obsessively labor intensive, but the tone in my previous work was darker, more referential to the human body and nature. WithLe Peepe Show,I was well aware that the tone at first began very tongue in cheek, like this cartoonish echo for my admiration of Annette Messager’s piece. As I began to sink deeper into the process however, I found myself sort of questioning my sanity, a bit. What the fuck was I doing and did this have any validity? I found myself leaving reason at the door and continuing down this sticky pathway until I knew it was finished.

Le Peepe Showshowed at various large scale group exhibits. The installation ofLe Peepe Showconsisted of a room painted a light shade of pink with holographic glitter spread all over the floor and walls. The Viewer was immediately hit with the sounds of an amplified music box playingEin Klein Nacht Musikfrom two speakers located on opposite sides of the room. Being a music box, this music would slow down, dragging until it stopped at which point you hear the massive sounds of a music box key hand cranked tightly and then released and the music began once again quickly unraveling its tune.

Personally, my favorite part ofLe Peepe Showhas always been the Ballerina. Situated like a giant music box, theBallerina PeepeTM spun inside her own personal platform. Hooked up to a small motor hanging behind the pink curtain, the Ballerina turned, along with her multiple reflections in the beveled mirror behind. It was always a sweet silent whisper of my appreciation for the multiple reflections of Rita Hayworth in Orson Welles’ “Lady from Shanghai”.
