  • About the artwork

    S’emparant de l’icône Barbie, l’artiste Catherine Théry met en scène une Histoire de l’Art revisitée qui place la femme au centre des débats. On découvre que Barbie est intelligente, cultivée et politiquement incorrecte. Devenant l’ambassadrice de toutes les libertés elle s’affiche comme elle ne l’avait jamais fait.

    Les vêtements des “femmes-poupées” sont peints sur leurs corps afin que rien ne fasse écran à leurs mensurations légendaires. Les décors et les accessoires sont créés par l’artiste. Les Barbies mises en scène dans ces décors sont photographiées, puis, les photos sont retravaillées avec les nouvelles techniques numériques pour donner aux oeuvres finales un esthétisme absolu et une personnalité unique.

    Les oeuvres Pas celles que vous croyez sont présentées sous forme de tirages FineArt collés sur Alu Dibond, sous Diasec. Cadre en aluminium au dos pour accrochage. Chaque oeuvre est signée au dos et numérotée.

    Cadre en aluminium au dos pour accrochage.

Catherine Théry

Catherine Théry is a French painter, photographer and visual artist. She studied at the School of Decorative Arts of Nice, and then started a career as artistic director. This experience made her have daily contact with professionals from the world of the image, which enriched her visual culture. It was then obvious for her to turned to photography.

Her collections have something in common, the taste of the artist for strong concepts, light and colors. Her most recent works, depict barbie dolls, which have particularly mark the critic. 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.
