Tsuneko Taniuchi. Micro-Event n°9bis /A Female Boxer, 2000.

Description:
Micro-Event n°9bis /A Female Boxer.
"I am not a Penelope", François Mitterrand Art Center, Beauvais, France, 2000.

I installed a bathtub, a TV monitor for screening the second performance of Micro-Event n°9, and a poster announcing the date of the world championship boxing match (which corresponds with the closing day of the exhibit). The closing day of the exhibit, in full public view, I asked a model (a naked white man) to sit in the bathtub full of the bubble bath and watch the entire 45-minute video ( in which I boxed against a punching ball, with Rap music), without moving. I filmed the whole scene with a model for 45 minitues at the closing day.
