This installation portrays three photographs from the Untitled Film Stills series by Cindy Sherman (1977-80).

Here I claim to be its author by replacing the face of Cindy Sherman by my own, and by building an off-screen to the images : a super 8 video on which this character stumbles in the roads of New York, and a contact sheet where we discover photographs that Cindy Sherman would not have used.

I enter the heart of the work of an artist and the feminist issues which were hers when she had my age in the 70s, to question my link with images and my femininity today
