« That's the first time I ever heard the expression "Fry my hide!". I'm gonna start using it in everyday speech and see if anyone notices. »
Posted by Amise.

In Fry my hide, Constanze Schweiger and David Jourdan reenact old manners within a contemporary discourse.
Recollecting traditional American quilts of the late 1800s Pennsylvania -early forerunners of the self-conscious invention of pictorial abstraction-, Constanze Schweiger’s "Joseph's Coat" painting series shows imaginary spaces of anticipation and fantasizes about an assertiveness-to-be.
While unveiling his automatic translation of Laurence Sterne’s "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman" into redneck vernacular, David Jourdan digs up "fry my hide", an obsolete idiomatic expression alleged hillbilly.
