never Happier

Never Happier, is a performance that developed out of Lakmaier's R&D research for Cherophobia. It was performed at Fierce Festival during an Unlimited Salon. For this durational work the artist sat on the floor of an indoor space wearing a long, elegant, black dress. In the beginning the dress way spread out in a circle around the artist and she was holding a big bunch of colourful helium balloons. Audience members come up to the artist and attached balloons to the hem of her dress slowly causing it to lift, until Lakmaier's face was obscured and my legs and knickers exposed.
