Mouchette

15 12 2009

The artist that i have looked into most recently goes by the name of “Mouchette.” Like Marcel Duchamp’s Rrose Selavy, Mouchette is only an alias. However, unlike Duchamp’s Rrose, Mouchette’s real creator is unknown. Mouchette, according to the website, is a 13-year-old girl who lives in Amsterdam, and is an artist.  This site is partially based on a Robert Bresson film called “Mouchette.” The film is about a young girl who is suicidal that goes to the woods late at night and is raped.

I tried accessing the website, http://mouchette.org, but could not successfully. I am not sure if this was because of the content on the site was too provocative and taken down or because my browser is not working right.

One thing that i found particularly interesting was a quote from the site that says “An artist? Yes. Here is a tip: I heard that the only way to become an artist is to say you are one. And then you can call “art” everything you make…. Easy, he?”I feel that this quote holds some validity.
