In 1969, a naked woman carrying a cross, walked through the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. The performance act went under the name “Female Christ”.
“We went there in a taxi; I was naked underneath my black coat, and kept the cross against my stomach… I was amazingly nervous… But suddenly they were in full swing. David stood by the exit, filming, and Bjørn was walking with a tape recorder and with my clothes, and then I started walking. I remember a rope was suddenly blocking my way. I wasn´t expecting that, so that was quite weird, but then I just kept walking with the cross, holding it up high at first and then downwards, the way you hold a yo-yo. Then it was over. And you could have heard a pin drop! Someone shouted “But – you can´t do that!” and “Good Heavens! Look, Sørensen, look!” Then we went out to the taxi waiting outside and drove away.”
