Naked Selfies, a performance by Milo Moiré

Milo Moiré’s performance series NAKED SELFIES thematize and caricature the pop-cultural mass phenomenon of self-portraits in social media. The artist take selfies with passersby using her remote-controlled camera mounted on a tripod, contrary to the others Milo Moiré is naked. In contrast to “PLOPEGG PAINTING PERFORMANCE – A Birth of a Picture”, which was performed during the ART COLOGNE 2014, this work requires interaction.

“The people who take a nude selfie with me actually disclose something about themselves, present themselves to the world with a statement. Through this physical, bodily interaction between me as a self-exposing avatar and the people wanting a selfie, I want to establish a point of contact between the real and the digital revelation of intimacy. A new meta-level of self-staging emerges“, Moiré says.

Milo Moiré (born 1983) is a Swiss artist and model known for her nude performances and the use of her body in her art. Moiré was born in Switzerland, of Slovak and Spanish origin, but works from Düsseldorf, Germany.
