My Business With The Bikiniking / Min business med Baddräktskungen / 2006

This project started in spring 2005 when Panos Papadopoulos, aka the Bikini King, owner of the swimwear company Panos Emporio and new owner of the rights to the Miss Sweden beauty pageant, phoned me and asked for advice. Panos decided to put the competition on ice in 2005 and in a press release stated that he might cancel it altogether. Panos and I began a dialogue on the future of the event.

The project was documented with sound and video and has been presented with images, press cuttings, transcripts of conversations, audio recordings, a video “Mythos, Logos and Miss Understanding” and as a radio documentary “My Business with the Bikini King – a tragedy of mistaken identity in 13 acts” for SRc on P1, Swedish Radio. The project has been shown at UKS in Oslo, Kunstihoone in Tallinn and Moderna museet in Stockholm.
