Mira Fuchs is the public face of artist Melanie Jame Wolf’s eightyear private life as a stripper. By drawing on the specific vocabularies of this bodily practice, she questions ideas surrounding gender, sexuality, performative intimacy, and dance as labour.

Melanie Jame Wolf makes performances, films, and installations about performance economies and immaterial capital. Sometimes solo, sometimes with friends. Always exploring systems of value and exchange, particularly as they occur in the murky field of immaterial capital – the social, the cultural, the affective. She investigates these flows as they are produced through ideas of ghosts, of gender, of pop, of myth, of morality, of sensuality, of class. Melanie Jame has shown her work in gallery, theatre, and film festival contexts around the world. She premiered her two last major performance works HIGHNESS and TONIGHT at Sophiensaele. savage-amusement.com
