Mdvanii: This is not a Doll!
BillyBoy* & Lala

17.11.2006 – 11.02.2007
The exhibition Mdvanii: This is not a Doll! was proposed by BillyBoy* and Lala. Mdvanii, conceived for adults, blurs the lines from the beginning. It appropriates – only to divert them – the principles of doll fashion and haute couture, thus becoming a complete work of art. The glamorous universe of this sculpture “with a life style” is a poetic fiction in which past and future are telescoped into an inspired and articulated chaos. Having become “cybersexual”, the enigmatic Mdvanii, never late with a metamorphosis, recycles surrealism and cannibalizes fashion.

The Musée de l’Élysée has exhibited, alongside, photographs of Mdvanii in situation.
