KIM DINGLE: Dingle does O’Flaherty’s
Dingle is a 70 year old freak living in LA. The work in this show spans 50 years, the photos are from 1974, the sculptures are from 1994. These figures are 27 years old; however…Don’t call them dolls, she’ll be pissed. These are “psycho-tods”, a fucked up form of anti-everything nihilism or something along those lines. These are babies with intention, hating the world and ready to destroy shit. If this gives you any context, she ran a successful vegetarian restaurant out of her studio called Fatty’s. Kim also opened a wine bar for children in LA.’s Chinatown and was never arrested.
