Lena Wicke-Aengenheyster contemplating the MONSTERFRAU Synthesizersuit also known by the term Soundcostume exhibited in Technical Museum Vienna as part of the wearables collection. In front we see an electron machinedrum which would be controlled by a multitude of buttons, faders and potentiometers on the synthesizersuit's front

In the backround we see a flatscreen showing videos of MONSTERFRAU's with her playing the Synthesizersuit during her live-performances 'MONSTERFRAU against Marduk', 'MONSTERFRAU opening act for Die Goldenen Zitronen' and other shows.

MONSTERFRAU Synthesizersuit ausgestellt im Technischen Museum in Wien aus der Luftperspektive von Mitja Kobal photographiert. Die Installation besteht aus dem Synthesizersuit alias Soundkostüm in einer Vitrine und dem technischen Zubehör in einer anderen Vitrine. Das technische Zubehör inkludiert Midi- und AKG-Empfänger sowie ein ThinkPad-Laptop samt Max.msp - Patch zur Umrechnung der Midi-Daten zur Bedienung einer elektron machinedrum. Ein Mackie Mischpult mischt letztlich den Sound von der Machinedrum, 2 Subtle Noisemakern und des Mikrophons.

MONSTERFRAU Synthesizersuit aka Soundcostume, ein Klassiker der wearable technologies, Teil der Sammlung "Tragbare Technologien" des Technischen Museums in Wien. MONSTERFRAU schaut frontal in die Kamera. Auf ihrer Brust und dem Bauch befinden sich zwei Platinen je eines Subtle Noisemaker - Synthesizers. Potentiometer, Knöpfe und Fader bedecken ihre nackte Haut.Ein Wasserschwall scheint auf MONSTERFRAU nieder zu gehen. Die bildendende Performance-Künstlerin Patrizia Ruthensteiner hat das PET-Kostüm für die Underground Opera "MONSTERFRAU gegen Marduk" mit freundlicher Unterstützung von Dannemann Global Extrusion GmBH designt. Die Performance-Künstlerin Lena Wicke-Aengenheyster erinnert mit der Performance "MONSTERFRAU gegen Marduk" an den babylonischen Schöpfungsmythos Enuma Elish. Diesen versteht sie als wesentlichen Wendepunkt von Konsensgesellschaften hin zu patriachalen Gesellschaftsstrukturen. Dieser Wendepunkt wurde mitr dem Enuma Elish und des darin beschriebenen Kampfes zwischen Marduk und Tiamat religiös begründet. MONSTERFRAU gibt an, dieser Kampf sei lange nicht zu Ende gekämpft und sie trete an Stelle von Tiamat in die zweite Runde an. Der Synthesizersuit und Wasser als künftiger Datenspeicher dienen als ihre Waffen. Eine wunderbare photographische Aufnahme des Vogue-Photographen Ionut Staicu. Sie entspricht der Ästhetik von Frauendarstellungen in der Werbephotographie der 2000er Jahre.MONSTERFRAU in Action

As her wings are closed and she took off her immense breasts - the wings seems like a weapon now and the viewer might associate her to representations of Amazones.

Ihr Halsband, das sie andernfalls wie eine Schlange um ihre Schultern herum trägt scheint im Zuge einer Peitschbewegung ein Herz zu formen.

Right at the beginning even before the Underground Opera starts, MONSTERFRAU is meditating vipassana-meditation in the middle of the audience. Vipassana is a meditation ie taught by S. N. Goenka. It is supposed to be the same meditation technic as Buddha developped. The most important is to watch and keep equanimous trying to understand the transience of everything. While she was meditating, her partner at the time Sascha Neudeck was played a sound sample in which a viennese  lawyer is conducting a notarization of an appartment purchase declaring that the bill could be handled without tax declaration.MONSTERFRAU performing the sequence 'Spinne' english 'Spider' of the Underground Opera 'Body & Capitalism'Penis on female bodyMONSTERFRAU posing like 'Madonna in a Mandorla' during the song 'Queen Mother' of the Underground Opera 'Body & Capitalism'.MONSTERFRAU shifting from the posture 'Madonna in a Mandorla' to the posture of indian ideas of goddess
