Micro-Event n°18bis /Marianne

Tsuneko Taniuchi. Micro-Event n°18bis /Marianne, 2006.

Description:
Micro-Event n°18bis /Marianne
"La Force de l'Art", Grand Palais, Paris, 2006.

In this Micro-Event I present a modern and cross-cultural version of the French Marianne, the national emblem of France.
I was dressed in a white T-shirt with "Marianne" written on the front and "Tsuneko" on the back. Instead of wearing a Phrygian bonnet, I wore a red wig and I put on blue boots. I danced to the "Marseillaise", mixed with different national anthems (of Japan, of Algeria, of Roumania, of Israel, of Colombia,...). This performance was video taped and installed on the grand image of world flags during the exhibit: "La Force de l'Art".
