These chimerical women pose, juggle, play with their own posture. They are figures inspired by the Domus Auréa.
They are staged in a graphic game, without thickness nor weight, mixture of rigor and inconstancy which sends us back to an extravagant reverie.* Facetious pantomimes… The register of the burlesque.
* André Chastel, La Grottesque, Le promeneur, 1988.
