Reindorfgasse 42, 1150. Wien
Nancie Naive and her life become a product offered to the public. In “I am Nancie”, she proposes a self-expansion, a reflection of a pop star in a camera lens. The star and the camera meet in battlefields: photo studios, city streets, the Improper Walls gallery. It is a Nancie Naive-advertising campaign created by Nancie Naive herself, in which she is a work of art, a product, a commodity, and a poster showing how things become important in the light of glory, even if they are not.
The space of "Improper Walls" echoes with the sound of high-heels. Elegant steps seem to float in the air – she walks on earth just the way she walks in Heaven. She manifests as contemporary Mary, – a common girl with the name of the Mother of God's. She's now been blessed. Her body becomes your daily bread, your earnings, your money. Her body is the indulgence of the 21st century, a sacred currency. Nancie redeems her sins with her own self, she sells herself, bodily sacrifices to God. She is the lamb, the snake, she is a divine coin. Her phantom foretells the misfortune neither of future, nor of past, but of today – a peculiar, distant existence and a careless death of ecclesiastical faith.
