About:

Addressing the sex industry and its’ market exchange strategies in the context and limitations of an embassy institution Call Girl 01 44 43 21 65 promotes a fictive escort/personals agency. Comprising a series of visiting cards interventivly distributed throughout different locations in Paris and ongoing inter-active performance at the Canadian Cultural Centre, the gallery space is transformed into a meeting room/salon, replete with actresses (and artist) to play the role of call girls who welcome visitors, answer the telephone line and further perpetuate the myth. Paradoxically, to its model, this agency has no lucrative goal; the only promise is under the formula of “100% dialogue”.
