These photographs feature characters of the performance Metamorphosis, Conversation Piece #1, given for the Nouveau Festival 2015, in the Musée National d’Art Moderne - Centre Pompidou of Paris.

By creating a new space-time continuum, the performance allows us to encounter the artist Judith Deschamps at different times of her life : in 1995, 2015, 2035 and 2065.

Four ages, four periods, four relationships to the body, technologies and creation, leading to a common ambition : explore the buried areas we all have inside us. Those areas that nourish imagination, desire, and allow metamorphosis.
