About the work
The artist walks the streets of the Electric Town in Tokyo to embody one of its most popular characters. Dressed as a French maid, she distributes a flyer with the question: Am I Kawaii?
Between the noisy shops and the curious look of the other "Maids", the artist breaks the routine and points out a stereotype of the popular imaginary.
