quote [Well-established Swiss performance artist Milo Moiré has been arrested in London after allowing strangers to stroke her genitals for her latest performance piece. The project, titled “Mirror Box”, saw the artist walk around various European cities with a large reflective structure covering her body. Using a megaphone to attract attention, she would then invite strangers to stick their hands in the box, and fondle either her breasts or vagina for a 30-second period
Milo Moiré’s performance “Mirror Box” is a societal reflection of human sexuality. It's a expanded reenactment of the “Tap and Touch Cinema” (1968) and a homage to the Austrian artist VALIE EXPORT, who was already fighting for women’s rights in the 1960s through artistic actions. Artist Milo Moiré utilises her body as an instrument, even as a weapon, in order to depict and disrupt power structures. She aggressively seeks the feminine expression of sexual self-determination and explores the boundaries of art and bourgeois morality].
