hand plays (object theater series)

Object theater series (18 pictures). I tried to transform puppets into masks for one’s hands, the puppet being a sort of second skin. At the beginning it was a great laboratory that allowed me to test all sorts of materials. Nothing new in itself: the first Radiographers did it in their own way as soon as X-ray radiography started. At the outset, I was granted the possibility, by a great laboratory, to test all sorts of materials. Gradually I restricted my field of activity and went further by focusing on the relationships between the values, by playing with stereotypes and cultural conventions, by confronting different kinds of images (medical, folkloric or even archaic…).
