Every time you choose, you have also to renounce…I have personnally always had difficulties to make choices in my every day life. People always present you life’s reality as simple dichotomy: this or that, heads or tails, left or right, beast or beauty, good or bad, black or white. But one of the most important thing I have learnt in analysis is to relativize. The world is not manichean, the nuance is a key for the prefrontal brain. As I was working with Barbie dolls when I received the opportunity to be part of the Apex Art project, I had the idea to use them as link between my current concerns : life in couple, equity between men and women, issues of modern working mothers. I decided to tint them in « fifty shades of grey » as an echo to the feminist side I have seen in the topic and to tight them on the ceiling by the feet, as if there was a leash to the foot of every woman who is at the same time a wife, a mother and a lady. She has to deal with her tiredness and to fight against the thought’s shortcut of the archaic brain and easy way of thinking which are offered to her everywhere.
