………LOVE PROFILE (3/7)……… I’m Really Good At

I’m really good at coming up with just the right place to eat, shopping for bargains, adjusting to any social setting, pronouncing foreign languages, and connecting one idea across a long distance to another.

I’m NOT really good at keeping plants alive, completing things (except my last two relationships which I ended with aplomb!), understanding mechanical stuff and why they break, sorting papers, and there’s much more.


WHAT I’M DOING WITH MY LIFE

I’m building family closeness, studying the spirit, and I have a challenging and wacky job in the arts.

………LOVE PROFILE (4/7)……… My Favorite Things

Movies: documentaries, Rushmore, Citizen Kane, Singing in the Rain, Godfather, To Live, Seven Samurai, Wizard of Oz, Brokeback Mountain, The Matrix, Devil Wears Prada, Gosford Park, Fargo, Brazil, A Room with a View, Crimes and Misdemeanors. (I also have a soft spot for sci-fi and superheroes.)

Music: Rufus Wainwright, Sondheim, American musicals, 80s pop, Adam Lambert, Philip Glass, John Adams, Beethoven and Mahler Symphonies, German Lieder, opera arias used in movies, and I’m addicted to NPR.

Food: I love food! I can’t think of anything I don’t eat! Ok, maybe I don’t do well with bugs, BUT I have eaten beetles (on a stick), worms (in an omelet), and scorpions (deep fried), all in China, of course. I’m eating more like a vegetarian these days.

Books: I like non-fiction like the museum catalog for Yoko Ono’s retrospective show from a few years back, Ursula LeGuin’s translation of the Tao Te Ching, and Thich Nhat Hanh’s Understanding Our Mind. Family photo albums. Right now, I’m reading Lewis Hyde’s The Gift.

Hot Spots: In town I like the St. Paul Farmers’ Market, Walker Art Center, the MIA, the University Club, Meritage, Heartland, Pho 79, Punch Pizza, and Mirror of Korea. Out of town I like the Boundary Waters, San Francisco, L.A., New York, Hong Kong, China, Paris, and Italy.

RED TOWER LAMP
I think this lamp is incredible! It’s designed by a famous Japanese architect. (I can’t remember who, so if you know, please tell me.)  Such striking form, and the half-globe atop the tower can get very bright, but it’s always under control with the dimmer. It’s Western and modern, but doesn’t the red color hint at traditional Chinese? $500. (75h __ dia base)

BLACK LACQUERED CHAIRS–Was $200 ea., NOW $150 ea.
TWO PEWTER GRAY AVAILABLE, TWO CELADON CHAIRS SOLD
When I moved to Iowa in the first grade my family became the third owner of the oldest Chinese restaurant in Des Moines, King Ying Low, which opened in 1917. When I was in high school, we sold that restaurant and opened another. I named it Chinatown. I remember I used to make the Mai Tais too strong, and they were often sent back. These chairs come from that restaurant. They’ve been re- upholstered, one pair in celadon and another in pewter. King Ying Low is now Fong’s Pizza, and Chinatown became a Mexican restaurant but is now empty. The symbol on the chair backs means “long life.” $150 ea. (17w 18d 36h, 18h to the seat)

SIGNED BY FAMOUS ARTISTS - was $700, now $550, set of 2
These signed prints by Christo and Jeanne-Claude are of the epic umbrellas project completed in 1991. Thousands of workers installed 3100 19-foot tall umbrellas. The blue umbrellas opened in Ibaraki, Japan, while the yellow ones opened north of Los Angeles. Self-funded through the sale of their artwork, the project cost $26 million and lasted 18 days. Amazing! $550 for the pair. (13 x 25”)

CLASSIC WALNUT END TABLE-Was $425, NOW $275
This table with its round top and simple, square base speaks calm and peace to me. Somewhere along the way, walnut became my favorite color of wood. Stainless steel is a cool counterbalance to the warmth of the wood. I’d keep it if I had room. At $275 it’s less than the full price you’d pay at Room & Board. (27dia 23h)

Jute Bouclé Rug – Was $300, NOW $210
This everyday classic is hand-woven and made from a highly sustainable and durable material. Elegant yet humble, it will set off beautifully all your furniture like it does mine. Sunshine has given this reversible rug a flaxen look on one side while the original color on the other side is platinum, so it’s versatile. A rug pad is highly recommended to protect wood or laminate floors. I have one to give you for free with purchase of the rug for $210. I also have the original rug bag for easy transport. (8x10’)

Filled it with plants, or fill it with ice and use it as a drinks cooler for parties (as I did once)! The stainless steel basin and powder-coated steel frame balance grace and strength. $300 is a great price for a unique piece! (40w 8d 28h)

OCTAGONAL TABLE

This Chinese octagonal table reminds me of bagua, the shape used in Taoist cosmology to represent the fundamental principles of reality.  It’s also just a table with a once-significant fissure that has been patched. Let’s call its flaws old-world charm. $250. (17.5w 17.5d 27h)

Jute Bouclé Rug – Was $300, NOW $210
This everyday classic is hand-woven and made from a highly sustainable and durable material. Elegant yet humble, it will set off beautifully all your furniture like it does mine.

PROTOTYPE PLANTER
This planter is truly one of a kind. Originally a prototype for Room & Board’s Slim series, it was never mass-produced. Filled it with plants, or fill it with ice and use it as a drinks cooler for parties (as I did once)! The stainless steel basin and powder-coated steel frame balance grace and strength. $300 is a great price for a unique piece! (40w 8d 28h)

SLEEPER
I think those big air beds are silly and clumsy. This sofa sleeper is neat and compact. It’s still for sale at IKEA, but mine is cheaper…and it’s signed. It converts easily; one person can do it. It’s perfect for your kid’s sleepover parties. Yours for a tidy $100. (53w 30d 28h)

………LOVE PROFILE (3/7)……… I’m Really Good At
………LOVE PROFILE (4/7)……… My Favorite Things
………LOVE PROFILE (5/7)……… What I’m Looking For

About:

I’m looking for love, so let’s fix the system

By Marcus Young
with Lauren DeLand, Hannah Frick, Han Zhang, and Travis Spangler

McKnight Visual Artists Fellowship Exhibition
July 13 – August 17
MCAD Gallery, 2501 Stevens Ave, Mpls
M-F, 9-8 / Sat, 9-5 / Sun, 12-5

Free and open to the public
Opening Night Sale, July 13, 6:30-8:30pm
Happy Sales Hours, Fridays 4-7pm starting July 20 and by appointment

To shoppers and suitors: I will be available in the gallery most Fridays 4-7pm and by special appointment. See the information below to contact me about either furniture or romance. Special discounts to buyers who can recommend a date!

This work expresses my simple hope of improving my life through two related acts: finding love and de-cluttering my home. I aim to upturn the common human impulse to fill emotional voids with material goods by parting with furniture and furnishings I have grown attached to but no longer need. Using Craigslist, social media, and the gallery space, I invite interested buyers to view and purchase my belongings in this hybrid marketplace. Borrowing the attention generated by the show, I attempt to tell as many people as possible that I’m searching for the love of my life. Excerpts of my personals ad from online dating sites are on the gallery walls. With this project, I explore the themes of love and attachment to objects, loneliness and home design, determining value and letting go, and the function of the gallery in contemporary art practices.
