“Pupae, Trash, Beasts” Jennifer Vinegar Avery

Pupa, Poubelle et les Bêtes (‘Pupae, Trash, Beasts’), performance by Jennifer Vinegar Avery, with Ky Why

During her residency at the Holding Textile Hermès, the American visual artist and performer Jennifer Vinegar Avery, along with the craftspeople, created a corpus of characters associating fabrics, photocopies, papier mâché and any other cast-off, recycled elements. After this phase of group work, she put together a “boutique” of dolls along with her bestiary. At Palais de Tokyo, during this performance, she activates her works and invites visitors to take part in this intimate fiction.

Jennifer Vinegar Avery will also be present daily at the exhibition to activate her installation, accompanied by dancers.

With Clair Obskur, on the opening night; Ky Why, from November 29 to December 6, and James Swainbank from December 24 to January 7.
