A striking fusion of body and sculpture... A fascinating glimpse in the “mirror”...

Stretched out on a table, an unclothed body adopts a series of animal poses and abstract forms, tracing the history of sculpture from prehistory to the present day.

A “body sculpture” which reproduces the essence of the form by assimilating its characteristics.

In a state of constant transformation, Victorine reinvents her appearance sculpture after sculpture, century after century. Throughout this process of metamorphosis she presents an image in perpetual movement. A simple table is her only prop, like a plinth. Rocked by her movements, the table squeaks, cracks and creaks, sounds which seem to emerge from the depths of Victorine’s mutations. The stark white lights appear to mould her body, defining its texture, accentuating its sculptural power.
