New York based artist Jennifer Rubell continues her trend of creating art based around or involving food as a subject matter. For her 2011 art series appropriately titled "Nutcrackers" she did 18 life-size sculptures of pre-fab mannequins with each one displayed in such way so that the legs can crush a nut in the inner thigh. The work is also interesting because it changes the traditional viewer-artwork boundary by requiring one to participate in it. The work was recently a part of New York's Frieze Art Fair.
