Art Basel Miami 2010: Jennifer Rubell Interview by NOWHNESS


Come vi dicevamo NOWHNESS ha realizzato una serie di interviste per approfondire la conoscenza di alcuni dei nomi che particeperanno all’edizione 2010 di Art Basel Miami.
Jennifer Rubell food artist, è stata ispirato da Goldilocks e dal suo insaziabile appetito per il suo ultimo progetto Just Right. Cresciuta in mezzo a Duchamps, Basquiat e Warhol della Rubell Family Collection- una delle più prestigiosi collezione dell’arte contemporanea al mondo- l’artista ha adottato la tradizione di creare un annuale Breakfast Project per gli ospiti che si recano presso la galleria della sua famiglia durante la fiera.
Nell’intervista la vediamo all’opera mentre butta giù un muro che servirà a creare l’ingresso che condurrà i visitatori alla sua festa da favola.

Food artist Jennifer Rubell was inspired by Goldilocks and her insatiable appetite for her latest project Just Right. Raised amid the Duchamps, Basquiats and Warhols of the Rubell Family Collection––one of the most prestigious in the contemporary art world––the artist has adopted the tradition of creating an annual Breakfast Project for guests at her family’s gallery during the fair.
With degrees from Harvard (Fine Arts) and the Culinary Institute of America, as well as numerous articles on food to her credit, Rubell’s projects merge visual and actual feasts, at the same time liberating her guests from the confines of the art world––perhaps a reaction to growing up in a house dotted with “Do Not Touch” signs. Visitors attending her breakfast this week (taking place on December 1–5 at Art Basel Miami), will be transported through a secret hole in a wall, past a small backyard and into a derelict building containing Goldilocks’ favored fare––bowls of porridge, brown sugar, raisins and milk, all of which are free to be consumed and enjoyed. Directors Jauretsi and Crystal Moselle filmed Rubell at the site while she took a sledgehammer to a wall, creating the entrance that will lead visitors to her fairytale feast.
