Thanks to her dolls, the artist revisits the history of art, and with it the place of woman in society, in history.
The clothes of these "women-dolls" are painted on their bodies so that Nothing can shield their legendary measurements. The decor and the portraying create the mood of a painting, with occasional liberties in the details, they are photographed and then treated with new digital techniques.

Catherine Théry has made out of the barbie doll a strong, intelligent woman, who sometimes borrows the masculine codes, but it asserts her feminity, in total freedom. The artist wanted to transmit a message and to give it to this caricature of woman which is often mocked and regularly offered to legions of little girls.
