Mis United is an ideal – a Miss Universe. She is all and everybody in one, thus thoroughly misshapen. Her successive changes in character are acted out in a bombastic multi-layered costume, as she undresses the music shifts in incompatible genres. Determined to adapt easily to a world in constant transformation, she poses as everything from a Burkha -clad woman to a lush she-devil.

The artist poses as a living sculpture among other sculptures at the museum Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Her agility is diminished by a set of wooden shoes in the form of pedestals. She voices her thoughts about how to enter art history while questioning whether the ones already inscribed are important reference points.
