INSTALLATION AND PERFORMANCE IN THE ATTIC OF THE STATE HERMITAGE DEDICATED TO LOUISE BOURGEOIS
ST. PETERSBURG 2001
The installation consisted of oversize white dresses with images of internal organs taken from an anatomy atlas printed on them.
The performance was conducted in the style of a fashion show, with young, old and pregnant women, handicapped people, the stars of the St. Petersburg art scene, poets, transvestites and sailors as participants. They carried internal organs made from real food, which where placed in the tables and have eaten up with the great relish by spectators. The soundtrack for the show was composed as the list of human fears made by a psychoanalyst and read by an electronic voice.
