Performance as the locus of contradiction – the paradox as the nucleus of spiritual development
I accomplish the dialog of art and science through embodiment.
With expressive, albeit effortless, coincidental seeming conceptual art, not bound to any materials except the own body, Milo Moire questions the thought diktat of everyday life. She makes use of naked skin as ambivalent sign of bareness, of the contempt for exposure rooted in culture, collective vulnerability and as a symbol of the universal longing for closeness. The own radical nakedness turns in this process into a protective shield against the stereotype and paradoxically makes the artist invisible. If one allows stunning defencelessness, a protective, almost private space arises – even on the tram.
Every single day a battle in our head starts all over again…a team of competing OPPOSITE NUMBERS
competes for our SELF - on a minefield of consciousness and pressure…gregarious smile
or exhausted crying, monitored work or devoted delight.
Always in reach of our hands is the iron MASK as a safeguard against negative consequences.
While existing in this dual core of rivalry between INSIDE and OUTSIDE, we negotiate with ourselves.
What remains of this inner DEMOCRACY?…An always changing, conflicted face.
Always the same way to work, day after day...it is early in the morning...FAR TOO EARLY for performance art!
The semi-automatized operating according to an internalised script...enter, pass through, punch the ticket, sit down...
Disturbed by a completely naked woman, right in the middle of it, dressed in words... What will happen? Astonishingly...
NOT THAT MUCH!
My paintings grant admission to the dark, the beautiful within you...
For me, painting is a process, starting with the crude idea, which, stroke after stroke,
almost organically turns into a whole, which eventually reveals tacit knowledge in a new context.
Focusing on man and his inner world, artist Milo Moiré works her way from the inside to the outside,
from the minor detail to the larger whole.
Whenever Milo Moiré paints a face or a body, she feels as if she was touching the person with every single stroke.
During the creative process the subject is alive in her touch.
