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 or weight, a mixture of rigor and inconstancy that sends us back to an extravagant reverie.*
Facetious pantomimes… The burlesque register.
* André Chastel, La Grottesque, Le promeneur, 1988.
