Jeanne Isabelle Cornière - "La Cuffia #1"

This work, like the ones belonging to the cycle of swimmers, has an autobiographical element and a souvenir - the sea cap belonging to the artist’s grandmother. The artist asked her models to wear the latex ‘70s sea cap, when modelling these works. A bit retro, with a textured surface, the cap becomes a symbolic accessory, a memento that allows the artist to reactivate her personal memory. The blue flashy colour of the cuff, and the presence of orange fish bag, transports the work into a surreal dimension, almost transforming it.
