Tsuneko Taniuchi. Micro-Event n°18 /Marianne Tsuneko / Tsuneko Marianne, 2002.

Description:
Micro-Event n° 18 /Marianne Tsuneko /Tsuneko Marianne:
"Profession of Artistic Faith", Chez Window, Paris, 2002.

I was in the window of “Window”, dressed in a white T-shirt on which “Marianne” was written on the front and “Tsuneko” on the back. Instead of wearing a Phrygian bonnet, I wore a red wig and blue boots. A French flag was hanging behind me on the wall and I danced to the “Marseillaise”. In the street, there were passers-by and the public of the "Profession of Artistic Faith" exhibit, which took place during the presidential elections, before 27th April 2002.
