Mimétisme (MIMICRY)

1973 / 1976

SÉRIE MIMÉTISME RELATIF (RELATIVE MIMICRY)

From Photographs of women for calendars.

· Dorothée Selz poses and is being photographed as the “pin-ups”
· She draws with China ink, on a B&W impression, objects that her model wears or is surrounded by (Leather boots, lamppost…)
· She creates a diptych with both women, the model + herself
· She puts around the diptych a frame worked “like” a pastry

Relative mimicry is a humorous proposition about the fascination and/or the reject of looking like the “seducing woman” model.

Materials: Photographs on paper, wood support, cement, acrylic paint
Size: 35,5 x 60 cm (13.9 x 23.6 in.) each diptych

Collection MACBA Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum

Works presented at Tate Modern, London, 2015
for the exhibition The World Goes Pop curators Jessica Morgan & Flavia Frigeri
