Voyeurism, Nudity and Art? The Life and Work of Conceptual Artist Milo Moire (NSFW)


Swiss artist Milo Moire is no stranger to controversy. She has sustained a career based largely on nudity and the controversy that comes along with it.

When we first saw her, she removed all of her clothes and walked to Art Basel with the words of the articles of clothing she would normally be wearing written in black marker on her naked body (see HERE). When we next saw her, she featured in her own installation called “Plop Egg” where she squeezed paint-filled eggs out of her vagina, allowing them to burst colorfully onto blank canvases below outside of Art Cologne (see HERE). A short while later, we saw her walk around an exhibition completely naked holding an equally naked baby (see HERE).

She was then arrested in London after allowing strangers to feel her genitals (see HERE). The project, titled “Mirror Box”, saw the artist walk around various European cities with a large mirrored structure covering her body. Using a megaphone to attract attention, she would then invite strangers to stick their hands in the box, and fondle either her breasts or vagina for a 30-second period.

But the question remains: is this art, or controversy for controversy’s sake? When is nudity art and when is it just attention seeking? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
