PAUL SERNINE & MISS COOCHIE appeared the first time in summer 2005. They are agents of the fantastic and put coups into everyday life in the service of poetry. As they follow 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.“

                                 Paul Sernine & Miss Coochie aka Jack Hauser & Sabina Holzer

Miss Coochie, woman of uncouth men, remembers how terryfied she was, when she looked back to the abandoned shore, where she has been stolen from by the white bull.
Her clothes fluttering in the breeze behind her.
Now she is awake and opens wide her wild rose court, for you, who she loves.
The stars whose ranks are sheppard by luzifer fanish for a daily day.
Whatch out! Cross boders with no illusions. Wellcome 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 miracoulous springs.

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