As an ironical as well as cynical response to the request of letting still photographs of the wellknown Chiara Fumai reads Valerie Solanas (spoken word based videoinstallation, 2013) circulate as artworks themselves, the artist created counterfeits of her own punk masterpiece as a critique to the spectacularization of its own image. In this photographic serie, disconnected characters belonging to other pieces by the artist re-enact, but just for a camera pose, the reading of Valerie Solanas' SCUM Manifesto, and create a group camp parody of the performance document fetishism.
The characters participating in the parody include: Dogaressa Elisabetta Querini (a painting from the Querini Stampalia Collection that is shown in I Did Not Say or Mean 'Warning', 2013), Zalumma Agra (the witch running her own D.I.Y. freak show during dOCUMENTA(13), 2012), Dope Head (folk alter ego of the artist in the I'm A Junkie video, 2007), Annie Jones (The Prodigy of Nature, 2010 and dOCUMENTA(13), 2012), Harry Houdini (voice in Free Like the Speech of a Socialist, 2011) and last not least Eusapia Palladino (the psychic studied by the men of Science in Criminal Woman, 2011 and later chosen as main actress in The Book of Evil Spirits, 2015).
