Thursday morning marked artist Jennifer Rubell’s 13th annual food performance held during the excitement-filled week that is Art Basel Miami Beach. AVENUE toasted a special celebration for Rubell, her December cover, and the debut of her newest piece.


Held at her family’s museum, The Rubell Family Collection, the two-hour event was focused on two main edibles: bread and butter. Known for her work using food as a medium, this is certainly not the first time Rubell has served up an interesting breakfast, to say the least. This year’s piece was named Devotion, and celebrated the love between her newly engaged friends Alban de Pury and Fanny Karst.


The performance featured the couple among pyramids of bread, heaps of butter, and a pile of sea salt. Alban sliced the bread into pieces, while Fanny buttered it, and handed to each guest, who then added a dash of sea salt before taking a bite. The performance, which involved guests to take part (much like the rest of Rubell’s artwork), is a portrait of love, inspired by Fanny’s routine of buttering bread every morning for her fiancé. Overall, the performance was symbolic of future decades of the twosome’s love. Talk about true creativity—and a fascinating conversation topic.
