Ivanka Trump Hits Back At Hoovering Lookalike Artwork

Ivanka Trump has criticised an artwork that shows her lookalike hoovering up breadcrumbs from a gallery floor.

Visitors to the Washington DC gallery throw crumbs for the model to clean.

The gallery says Ivanka Vacuuming, by Jennifer Rubell, explores Ms Trump’s “comically wide range of feminine identities – daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde”.

In response, Ms Trump tweeted that “women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up”.

The performance is being staged by arts group CulturalDC for two hours every night until 17 February, and is also being live-streamed online.

CulturalDC’s executive director Kristi Maiselman said Ms Rubell’s work was “insightful”, “timely” and “boundary-pushing” in its reflection of contemporary womanhood.

The gallery added that it was not just about Ms Trump, and did not represent “one feeling, one relationship or one point of view towards this powerful and sexualised female form”.

But Ms Trump – the president’s daughter and a White House adviser – disagrees.

Tweeting almost a week after the piece launched, she accused the artist of trying to “knock down” a fellow woman.

Her brothers reacted in a similar way.

Donald Trump Jr called the piece a “sexist attack”, while Eric Trump told Fox News that his sister was “a powerful woman who has done more for women than probably anybody in Washington DC”.
