Things To Come #23
De Balie - Salon
Friday December 14
Start 21.00 hrs.
Mouchette the resident of mouchette.org, celebrates her last birthday party
in De Balie. Mouchette's existence is clouded with ambivalence. One of the
mayor questions is if she exists at all? When you send an e-mail to
Mouchette via her web site, you get a reply. According to the web site she
lives in Amsterdam, we can read this in the declaration of love that she
has published on her web site... Yet nobody has ever found her there...
Mouchette, as she states herself, is modelled after the main character of
the film by the same name of Robert Breson (1967), in which a 13-year old
girl commits suicide.
Mouchette and her friends will be present in real virtuality and present
themselves extensively to her guests. A webmix projected in the space will
show work of Mouchette's friends, her favourite net.artists and her own
For everybody who comes to visit her party there will be a gift to take
home, a tangible symbol of the phantom Mouchette, who already lives since
1996 in her web domain: http://www.mouchette.org
Mouchette's Last_Birthday_Party is her last, because she is expected to
commit suicide during the party, just as will be the case in future
birthday party's, in 2002, 2003, and so on for ever....
