Best known for her large-scale installation of a digital scan of her own body at Frieze 2013, Jennifer Rubell’s work is rooted in a feminist art-practice that draws parallels between motherhood and art-making. Following the birth of her second child, Rubell has begun to involve the viewer in her personal experiences and emotions involved with nurturing and protecting a child.
Stephen Friedman Gallery Exhibition
A highlight of the show is ‘Them’, an installation and performance piece in the first gallery space which encourages the viewers to pick up hard-boiled eggs and season them using salt and pepper shakers from Rubell’s personal collection. The shakers range from a bride and groom to a drunkard and bottle, and inspire the viewer to consider forms of nourishment and dependency in society beyond.
A curious show for the more daring contemporary art lover: this quirky exhibition is worth a visit if you find yourself in Mayfair this autumn.
