Lèche Vitrines shows a performance in the public space of Paris during the confinement period as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the phrase “lèche vitrines” for “window shopping”, which literally translates to “window licking”, Martina Morger strolls around the streets of Marais, one of the most fashionable and busy districts in Paris, 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 Vitrines depicts an absurd pursuit for individualism inside a capitalised environment.
