Monumenta 2018: one look and I’ll shoot.
Artist trio RON MILLER came up with a creative contribution for the Monumenta urban art festival in Leipzig where social voyeurism meets unexpected strength from the geisha, drawing inspiration from the motto ‘Fuck Fame, I shot YOU down!’
This unforgotten Japanese woman, beloved of one of the artists, is presented from her strong side in a battle against fame and glory, with her viewers being drawn into the line of fire with every look. Anyone indulging their curiosity here will see the muse’s portrayed personality light up on canvas, becoming in the process a voyeur of the scenery around the geisha and her alter ego.
Monumenta Leipzig offers 6,000 square metres of temporary exhibition space for street and contemporary art, graffiti, installation, music, performance and fine art. It is hosted by Berlin-based association Wandelism.
