Pomme des Garcons x Mark Jenkins
We had another wonderful dinner at Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne. This time with the sociocritical artist Mark Jenkins.

A thing that i’m very proud of is the installation we worked out with Mark. He installed a woman that was lying on the dinner table for the whole night. The table was very narrow so the guest were a little disturbed in their space all the time. They had to talk, shake hands or pass wine bottles above her back. They had to take care not to inflame her fair with the candles or to dirty her clothes with the food on the plates. In the end, as the final course, we served a classic and old fashioned carrot cake on her back as a self service thing. Ever seen art collectors eating from a piece of art at an exhibition? We have.
