Eva & Adele - even the stage name is suggestive of something paradisical - made their first appearance as an androgynous living artwork in 1988. The shrill and shimmering packaging in which they have presented themselves ever since (pink costumes, pumps, shaved heads, makeup, jewelry and angels' wings), along with their radiant smiles inspire astonished gazes, laughter and genuine enjoyment - not to mention a feverish clicking of camera shutters - among people all over the world. Their public personas - together with printed ephemera including the photos that show up in the press or are sent to them from nearly everywhere - represent the artwork, while the photographers are its co- creators. "Wherever we are, there's a museum", they say, making the entire world a boundless stage for their existence as artists. Their courageous and radical work evokes both delight and admiration, affirming them in their role as "World Communicative Global Plastic." This publication is a documentation of the great media resonance to the brilliant performances of "Mediaplastic Eva & Adele". The team of two has worked over and colored the newspaper clippings of their photographs and signed them with their logo, creating unique objects which turn their ephemeral performances into lasting works of art.
