Pre-performance of 

“Mme Ling .V sur l’avenue Montaigne"

Installation: Video performance ( 4 min.), photography, objets,

2013-2014 

 

In a flat, the ideal safe environment, I enact and explain a planned intervention to be performed in Paris at an address in Avenue Montaigne. My role is that of “Mme Ling .V”, one of China’s newly rich, having a nervous breakdown in the LV luxury store. Is such a rehearsal really necessary ? Stag- ing the rehearsal becomes a performance in its own right and a record of an event seen before it even occurs.
