Theoretical background: 

The cow is a sacred animal in some countries such as India. It is also the source of one of the staples of human nutrition: milk.
Woman herself is the nurturer of humanity, she gives birth and nurses the emerging man. This parable of a milk-woman is also a critique made at a time when her status as a woman is subject to laws that violate the universal rights of mankind. In this performance, the woman is no longer a passive object subjected to the system of consumption, but rather an active player. This work is also a critique of the economic crisis which demonstrates that in our paradoxical era, it is easier to buy a woman than a cow that is outside the quotas of the European Union. At its end, this site also gives a nod to Elisabeth Badinter’s latest book...

THE ARTIST METCUC, a socially engaged woman and firm believer in equality for the image of man and woman: The woman-object and her relation with sexuality is the subject the artist has been working with since 2003, at the time of the launching of the Calendar of Old Nice vendors, with her WAR-cry: “Woman is no longer an object, but man is becoming one.” She then continued to work on this subject with the porn stars who denounced their existence as women as part of the concept “ENOUGH OF”. In 2008, she posted a video in which a veiled man is subjected to the whims of his woman-dominatrix, played by the famous X actress Nomi. During this encounter, Nomi agreed to be the Farmer that manages her flock and the milking of women to produce her fine cheese...Gentlemen, do not start licking your lips already, it is merely a performance showcasing the paradox of a humanity progressing intellectually and that sometimes proves that animals are superior to us.

SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE AGRICULTURAL SHOW IN FRANCE
Website launched February 26, 2010
Buy for the first time in France cheese made of a woman’s breast milk
The CONCEPT: SELL MEN THEIR ULTIMATE FANTASY
CHEESE MADE OF WOMEN’S BREAST MILK!
A website will be put online to show photos and videos, and also to invite websurfers to buy the breast milk-based cheese.
All this being an artistic web performance by METCUC, no cheese will actually be produced or sold.
For the success of this performance, the media’s complicity in making this site’s existence believable is extremely important so as to provoke a reaction from the large online audience and to observe how the information thereby spreads and changes. The artist METCUC has been analyzing the web since the debut of his first performances of this kind.
