Interview with Milo Moiré
Degree in psychology and model’s forms, from Germany, Milo Moiré not only bares her body.
Do you have a personal definition for Art?
Art is transformation. It’s able to bring the plasticity in the daily human experience, in the freedom area of the personal inner meaning. The moment in which man finds himself in this unconscious language of perceived images, he knows the art-transformation. What a feeling! What makes art so special is that from the bodily sensation is born a universal understanding that feeds it in its turn.
Tell us what happened the day of the tour in the subway:

The artist is present is a brilliant artistic achievement in its most human form. People experience the meeting moment in a fully conscious. They are frozen alive, they are reflected, they are equal to themselves and at the same time open. All this happens without words and in a purely physical manner. When you sit down in front of the artist, time seems to stop, while, during all those hours, every cell in the body of Marina keeps on ticking like a clock. So she created an aware symbol for the time of a meeting in which, through its immense governing body, she is able to break the banality of everyday life.
It seems that some of your performances, despite the media attention , do not have amazed the public opinion so much. Is it a matter of habit or impassibility?
In a short-term viewpoint, it is more advisable to maintain the customary perspectives and don’t put yourself in the shoes of something unusual. The man loves comfort and consumption. Try………….
