Who knew Tilda Swinton was Snow White in disguise?
Surprising visitors at the MoMA, the actress will be taking up residency in New York’s MoMA this month on random days. As a MoMA source tells the Gothamist, “Museum staff doesn’t know she’s coming until the day of, but she’s here today. She’ll be there the whole day. All that’s in the box is cushions and a water jug.”
“Tilda Swinton will be doing unannounced, random performance art pieces sleeping in a glass box in the museum,” the source added. “Today is the first performance. Each performance lasts the whole day the museum is open.”
Titled “The Maybe”, Swinton first performed the piece in London in 1995 at the Serpentine Gallery. She has also performed the piece in the Museo Barracco in Rome.
I’ll be lying if I said I understood performance art, but I suppose this is significantly better than Yoko Ono’s take at it.
P.S. What will Tilda do if she needs to use the washroom?!!!!
