"Pigs in Box” inserts massive fabric inflatables into the rigid "box" of existing retail storefront space, where a supple, rotund fit and precise posture produce three palpable, experiential environments united by "hugs".
. Under the Belly, Eden
A slightly humid, softly lit, plant-filled space beneath a pouch stippled belly brimming with stuffed offspring; nails decorated courtesy of Miss Hendricks' double.
. First Hug
Where wall and tumescent appendage first display their fond warmth.
. Fat Grotto, Gothic
Vintage clothes sway upon day-glow locks dangling from bloated, ribbed vaults.
. Second Hug
Squeezing between tender appendages.
. Out, into a Clearing
Delivery to an open environment, an outfit displayed front and center.
