Gyna Bootleg - Performances and picture sessions







































Exactly one year ago, I published a post about Gyna Bootleg (Stephanie Neves, ex-Tinsel Teeth). But there was so much over the last 12 months from this rather extreme performer that she deserves to have another. It's sometimes quite rough to watch and she treats her body quite bad. The symbolism below is not clear and I'm not sure there is any, or maybe in an Artaud's way, meaning a totally idiosyncrasic one that doesn't need to be identified to travel from the creator to the viewer. Among the female body performers, she's surely the most distubing (didn't say disturbed) and may leave a lot of people rather dubious about the value of her work (and even the fact that it's work and not only fantasies from a deranged mind). Personally, I find there's a real poetry not only in what she does but in who she is. Not often someone is poetic. You'll find all these images on her tumblr blog here with videos of her performances (such as the ones below) sometimes with the band Sire.
