mariti (casting per il marito ideale)
(husbands – casting for the ideal husband)
cibachrome prints, 1999
Documentation of an action that took place in the foyer of the Parenti theatre in Milan, as part of the event Attraversamenti.
The project consists of a direct exchange between the artist and theatre public.
Mocellin, in a wedding dress, asks people who want to take part in the project to tell her what kind of wife they think she would be. Then, after recording their answers, the artist invites them to be photographed next to her in a small photographic set staged in the foyer.
husbands is part of a series of relational projects in which the artist invites the audience to fantasise about her, reflecting thus on the relationship between stereotype and desire .
