PAUL SERNINE & MISS COOCHIE are agents of the fantastic and put coups in the service of poetry into everyday life. As they follow the traces of fictions, they travel through time. They like to exchange and negotiate individual and pulp fictions.They appear in different places and for various occasions. Are they real, or fiction? Their origin is uncertain, although it is evident in films and mythologies of pop culture: Miss Coochie – Catwoman – Modesty Blaise – Emma Peel – Irma Vep. Paul Sernine – Arsene Lupin – Lemmy Caution – Zigomar – Fantômas. They follow this strange plan of Jean Genet: „To dream oneself, to make this dream tangiblein order to become a dream in other people.“
They appeared the first time in summer 2005.

Miss Coochie, woman of uncouth men, remembers how terryfied she was, when she looked back to the abandoned shore, where she was stolen from by the white bull.
Where her clothes fluttered in the breeze behind her.
Now she is awake and opens wide her wild rose court, for you, whom she loves.
The stars, whose ranks are herded by Lucifer, vanish for a daily day.
Whatch out! Cross borders with no illusions. Welcome guests and accept spirits, as to fit a candle to its flame.
Not so far from dessert comes a memory, a shining amour, a moon covered in black, a note for the future. Wilderness pricks out from miraculous springs.

There could be a gun in her warm hand. (Sabina Holzer)
