A new art exhibit allows visitors to toss crumbs at an Ivanka Trump lookalike, who swiftly vacuums them up with a smile on her face.
The art piece from CulturalDC is called “Ivanka Vacuuming,” and features a model meant to resemble the 37-year-old White House adviser and daughter to President Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
Guests to the Flashpoint Gallery in Washington are invited to throw crumbs onto a plush pink carpet and watch as the Trump double makes them disappear with help of the vacuum, over and over again.
The piece from New York-based artist Jennifer Rubell is “simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing,” according to a news release.
Jennifer Rubell’s performance-art piece ‘Ivanka Vacuuming’ opens at Flashpoint Gallery tonight. Members of the public are invited to throw crumbs for “Ivanka” to vacuum up. There is a livestream. https://t.co/XGvv8ay1kR pic.twitter.com/urd3MWvIqN
