Drinking Painting, 2011
Quench your thirst with art
The American artist Jennifer Rubell (b. 1970) pursues an interactive approach in her art. Her works are a hybrid of performance, installation and happening. Food and drink are central ingredients in her creative activity. She produced the Art Edition Drinking Painting for the 2011 Summer Night’s Gala at the Fondation Beyeler. What at first sight looks like an empty landscape painting, reveals itself upon closer inspection to require our active participation: the faucet works. You can fill the 10-liter tank with whatever drink you wish: water, fruit juice, liquor – the choice is yours. Rubell’s Drinking Painting springs to life again and again each time it is used. Art work becomes practical object, and vice versa. Surprise your guests with drinks tapped straight from art!
