Backstage at INkonst, Malmo, Sweden, was quite a spectacle of some of the globes most cutting edge fashions, the new trend, DIY painted topless one pieces and *"action pants".
*"ACTION PANTS" crotch cutouts, modelled by Head of NO-DANCE at C.O.S. Krõõt Juurak @clickercat vErY inspired by *VALIE EXPORT's "Action Pants: Genital Panic" performance and photo series (1969)
NAKED (by Krõõt Juurak)
DIY as Destroy It Yourself as Subtractive Fashion towards nakedness beyond consumption. Action pants is open source: Use the scissors: H&M minus TRIANGLE = Action pants.
Action pants is a declaration: against the readymade,
against "easy peaces",
against guitar solos, against any kind of sedative art,
against conservation of art in museums, reconstruction
against any individual retrospective now and in the future.
Action pants stands for radical nakedness, chaotic freedom beyond any good or bad categories here and now.
How does it feel? DIY!

THE STAGE IS YOURS! (The first Interactive Chicks on Speed art-performance)
The Naked Performer was our first DO IT YOURSELF STAGE SHOW, blurring the lines between "audience" and performer, where the audience became the art stars.
Jobs on Stage: bar tenders with schnaps cocain pistols, wanna be dancers, mobile disco ball slaves, "creative rape", unfamous action painters, all the way, naked or not, everybody entering the performance space was hired for the job, anything said, performed or not performed, was part of the performance...including breaking that girls mobile phone! oops!
The beautiful and artful, Ann-Liv Young aka Feminasty Sherrie was Career adviser; Sherrie starts looking for art workers who always dreamt of being famous painters, dancers, bar tenders to follow C.O.S. instructions very attentively!!!!

FINAL DRESS REHERSAL, performance starts in 2 hours!
The naked stage @ Inkonst. Chicks in Malmo are Nadine Jessen, K Juurak, Ann liv young, Michael, A.L. Steiner, Mel and me, we've got lots of work work work.
The press announcing NAKED PERFORMERS.....apparently it's sold out....a camera man came by yesterday and expected naked rehersals, he was deeply upset, to find us rehersing fully clothed....he even tried to get us to take our clothes off, saying it was for national TV!
last night Ann-liv Young AKA Sherrie performed "Cinderella" for the first time, strong, beautiful and pooey! in a genius kind of way! Sherrie delivered an emotionally and ear damaging rendition of Britney Speers song "Hit me one more time", sitting on a bed of glitter, circled with kitchen knives, reciting Cinderella's thoughts and managed to not only sell the audience her mini mouse watch, in an open bid with the audience, but bags of poop as art souvenirs. We wonder why the Director of PS1 and MoMA would even dare to cut the power on such an important, feminist performance artist of today, was it too HARD?
We love you Ann-Liv Young!
Her recent series of works entitled Integration Project summarizes experiences and investigations related to the situation of being a womаn immigrant in Germany. The preceding project Looking for a Husband with EU Passport was an initial key frame that thematises gender politics and capitalism and describes the collision between isolation, poverty and the EU policies of exclusion: to obtain a residence permit for the EU she posted her nude photo on the Internet in search of an EU citizen interested in marriage. A brief meeting in Belgrade was followed by the wedding as a performance act in the media of law.
