Jennifer Rubell: Portrait of the Artist / Stephen Friedman Gallery, Frieze London 2013

For its Frieze Art Fair 2013 presentation, Stephen Friedman Gallery chose to present Jennifer Rubell’s interactive sculpture Portrait of the Artist. Portrait of the Artist is an autobiographical work that Jennifer Rubell created when she was pregnant. In this video, Jennifer Rubell talks about the concept and the creation process of the work.

Portrait of the Artist is a white larger than life-sized fiberglass sculpture based on a digital scan of the surface of Jennifer Rubell’s naked body when she was eight months pregnant. It features an egg-shaped void where the baby would be. People are encouraged to pose inside the void in the fetal position. With this work, Jennifer Rubell continues her exploration into the relation between the viewer and the artwork.

Jennifer Rubell: Incubation. Interactive Food Installation.

As every year, Jennifer Rubell conceived a breakfast installation for Art Basel Miami Beach week. It’s Jennifer Rubell’s 11th installation at the Rubell Family Collection. Titled Incubation, the installation consists of two parts: an incubation gallery where yogurt is being made; and an observation gallery where the yogurt is anointed with honey and then consumed. As you can see in this video some skill was needed to catch the honey that was dripping from a container above the heads of the guests…

Jennifer Rubell: Just Right. Interactive Food Installation at the Rubell Family Collection, Miami

Just Right is Jennifer Rubell’s food art project for this year’s Art Basel. The interactive food installation is located in a derelict house just behind the Rubell Family Collection. To access it, the visitors have to slip through a hole broken into the back wall of the Collection’s courtyard. Inside the abandoned-looking house, hundreds of bowls, spoons, napkins, and dozens of crockpots containing porridge wait for the guests. Why is the title of the installation “Just Right”? Because there are no options: the size of the bowl, the shape of the spoon, the temperature of the porridge, are all specifically chosen, they are just right.

On the occasion of the Armory Show week in March and a panel discussion at Independent art fair VernissageTV met with New York based artist Jennifer Rubell to talk about her large-scale food projects, which are a hybrid of performance art, installation art, and happenings.

For many people, one of the highlights during Art Basel Miami Beach week is the breakfast at the Rubell Family Collection. Each year, since 2001, Jennifer Rubell creates a food installation for that event in the courtyard of the Rubell Family Collection in Miami. Last year, Jennifer Rubell’s project titled “Old-Fashioned” consisted of 1’521 doughnuts hanging on a free-standing wall; in 2008, a mountain of bananas and a large field of different cereals were waiting to be eaten away (American Morning); and in 2007 she presented Drive Thru, featuring 2’000 hard-boiled eggs with a pile of latex gloves nearby to pick them up. Other projects include Creation, for the New York performance-art festival Performa 09; and Reconciliation, at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.. On March 22, Jennifer Rubell, will present Icons, an interactive food journey through the Brooklyn Museum including drinking paintings, suspended melting cheese heads, and more.

In the first part of the interview, Jennifer Rubell talks about when and how she started with her installations and the creation process of her works. In the second part that will be published tomorrow, she talks about the fascination of food and future projects.
