about the artist :
Cecile Plaisance

Inspired by female friendships Cecile Plaisance wants to have fun with an amusing, slightly off-beat character. She has also created a series using Barbie, a heroine who represents beauty, and reflects an image which is very in touch with today. Like a trip into our imagination, with an added touch of humour...

 

Sophisticated and clearly out of the line, the Barbie Series of Cécile Plaisance takes us back to childhood.
Photographed in the sea, in the mountains, in New York... in the studio, the plastic dolls appear to be alive and posing. Details of their plastic features suddenly become tender flesh and their expressions become sensitive and ambiguous.

 

In this oblivious and ever happy world, Barbies appear as universal icons of the necessary and permanent entertainment. Aren't we young forever? But Cecile Plaisance's Barbies don't belong to childhood. They play definitively with the innocence of her audience's eyes.

 

What if God were a woman? “Fuck the rules” is a series of photos that ignores established precepts and, instead, delivers on an open perspective in which men and women accompany one another religiously, like complementary souls. Far from the mummifying codes of religion, Cécile Plaisance invites us into the subtle and sensual freedom of the senses, where Woman is seen as a female pope, the exclusive mistresses of her decisions.
