Marais, Paris, FR
Lèche-Vitrines was a performance in the public space of Paris during the confinement period as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the French phrase for ‘window shopping’, which literally translates to ‘window licking’, Martina strolls around the streets of Marais, one of the most fashionable districts, inspects the products on display and licks the separating glass. With the objects of desire being both daily life as well as luxury products, Lèche-Vitrine depicts an absurd pursuit for individualism inside a capitalised environment.
