Nous, les autres

Abstract: This essay explores certain current artistic practices (cinema, performance, photography) marked by identity questions and dualities mirroring those of my pictorial project nous, les autres. Through an unusual composition of body and clothing objects, fictional entities fuel controversy and renew the viewer’s perceptions. In the three chapters, two cinematographic works, two performances and two photographs will stand alongside my series of paintings to reveal their journey. De l’identité à la perception, the subject-object of my paintings, toys with the blurred image shown to the spectator, much like an actor in a movie. Entre opposition et annulation evokes the neutral and dual fiction stemming from a performance giving rise to the poetic and the comical. Finally, entre hasard et propension provides a backdrop for my artistic choice of images to balance mishaps and reflexes, much like photography complementing an ensemble. Through this mixture of matter and colour, nous, les autres takes the form of open artwork.
