The solo EFFACÉE(S) (Erased) puts the female body affirming its femininity to pasture by submitting it to the gaze of spectators who are led to change their view of the naked female body. A woman exposed is progressively transformed under the eye of the spectator into a deconstructed body, buffeted between agonizing struggle and imbalance. EFFACEE(S) (Erased) questions the feminine identity and the manner in which the woman’s body can be used in our societies. How to unveil the individual and its intimacy beyond its appearance?
