Easy to Swallow
The Yummies' art is filling.
A human beatbox, an experimental saxophone, kung-fu performances and the Donut People. What could be more yummy? Nothing, in the opinion of artists Ray Young Chu and Ben Ildae Lim, who launched their "Yummies" art movement at the Assembly Annex, 820 West Eighth Avenue, during the February First Friday Art Walk. Tonight is the closing reception for their installation, Special Recipe Show, and it promises to be even crazier than the opening. Running from 6 to 10 p.m., it's one art party you don't want to miss -- especially with Mrs. Lim providing the tasty treats.
Chu and Lim are artists in their own right, each creating edgy, urban pieces. But together, they're focused on designing skate decks, T-shirts, videos and paintings covered with off-the-wall icons like the lowly dung beetle. And it's all in the name of yumminess. "What's Yummie?" they ask. "The Yummies is about the joys of life. The Yummies' main objective is to shine light and to bring an uplifting message to encourage growth, wisdom and joy for life."
