Lena Marquise - Body As Commodity and other works













Lena Marquise is a performer. She lends her body for diverse performances based on the relation between the female body and its representations in the current cultural and sexual dominant social rules. Her most notorious (and recent) performance was her "vagina as phone charger" that took place in the Art Basel Miami in December 2014 (with a certain Usher who charged his battery in the USB cord getting out her vagina). One link in a now long tradition of activism questionning the way female body is constrained to object use. Her site here. Other performances or pictures in the above series.
