Image of München 4 – Happy Birthday Minga

2012 / 10 days / live performance / Galerie der Künstler, München, DE

On 13 sequential days I locally work each day on a new durational performance, the Image of München Series.

Today is Munich’s 854. anniversary. Because of that I first go to the Marienplatz and buy a gingerbread heart. I order to write on it Ois’ Guade Minga, means in this context Happy Birthday Munich in Bavarian language. I wear this heart and walk across the centre of Munich.

In gallery I build festoons in black and yellow and rosettes in white and blue and decorate the gallery with it. I put the gingerbread heart on the wall and wear a long black evening dress, which has on one side the emblem of Munich appliqued.

I paint and draw 854 cakes for Munich on paper and put them on the wall. I invite the audience to join me painting some cakes for Munich.
