The innovative fashion collective threeASFOUR combines avant-garde fashion and ancient bread-breaking rituals in the interactive performance Fest. This one-night-only event will take place at The Jewish Museum on Sunday, November 10 at 6 pm. Fest features three female performers wearing couture dresses of bread baked in shapes of the five Platonic solids. The women will stand in the center of a five-pointed star, surrounded by male spice-bearers. Each man will hold a geometric vessel containing a spice mixture representing one of the five classical elements: fire, earth, air, ether, and water. Audience members will be invited to enter the star in groups of three, break a piece of bread off the dresses and dip it in the spices. threeASFOUR designers Adi Gil, Gabriel Asfour, and Angela Donhauser will be the first to participate in this symbolic ritual.
Part of Performa 13, the only biennial dedicated to new visual art performance across disciplines, Fest is designed in collaboration with Breads Bakery, culinary curator Naama Shefi, Lior Lev Sercarz of La Boîte, architects Bradley Rothenberg and Studio Christian Wassmann, body painter Oliver Halsman Rosenberg, Bruce Gitlin at Milgo Industrial Inc., and Bollinger Atelier. The performance is directed by Jessica Mitrani with music and video projections by Georgia and Brian Close and Justin Tripp.
Fest is presented by the Jewish Museum and Art Production Fund.
