Shown as part of frasq, a festival of le generateur, and of nuit blanche
Galerie Stanislas Bourgain, Paris, France
With this performance, I addressed every woman's expectations and every man's possibilities. On top of it, I explored an idea of instant art – with an eternal human desire to be pictured with someone celebrated (a fake celebrity in this case).
A woman doesn't only respond to male nudity with her body, but more importantly, she responds through a complicated combination of emotions, including her maternal instinct. What could be more direct than a naked white male with a newborn African baby in his arms?
This horrifying template contains the whole world's lies and a nightmare of human relationships. Each and every visitor will have a chance to take a seat next to us and to be pictured, and even to bring this picture home.
And if the female population of the earth does not completely abhor me after all that, I will consider it a good day.
