Toronto

My place in society does not allow me to play Russian roulette, to open a casino, to carry on a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton, to dress myself out of a fashion magazine, to wear sneakers Made in China. My place in society requires me to barely lift a finger, to spy on my concierge, to wait for the bus, to reread the rules which govern my access to the penal code, to put my socks on right side out, to carry on a normal conversation, to correctly spell the following words: ? WARNING, DON?T MOVE, YOU?RE ON CAMERA? (tonelessly), to open a bank account, to climb the walls, to smoke and drink to excess. I?m a folk tale hero. 340,000 copies sold every year. I hold the department store sales record for 40 years. To answer to the question: What color is Henry IV?s white horse? Question... Answer...

Whereas we are in a difficult and tumultuous financial trading period, the rumour is that a gang of 15 Snow Whites, prowling around the Bourse area in Brussels, will get into the Bourse building on the 4th October 2008 for 5 hours.
Already, sighted in different districts around the world: Russia, South-America and recently New York, these Snow Whites, even though armed don’t seem really dangerous.
Where do they come from?
Why are they here?
Introducing this character in an historic and emblematical building, the artist tries to question the position of popular culture in the context of an economic depression.
