Like a mask with two faces, the artistic practices of Pauline Hisbacq and Marie Quéau come together in the exploration of fantasy and the shifting meanings of the same story, nostalgic and intimate for one, darker and more carnal for the other.Drawing on the field of interpretations and the dreamlike nature evoked by the semantics of the exquisite corpse, the two iconographers have constructed a personal dialogue through a precise device, where each image is chosen by one in response to the other. Unfolding little by little the visual language of their inner worlds, mixing lost love, dark romanticism and deviant desires, these associations of photographs question the symbolic and necessarily subjective resonances associated with the image.
Imagined in situ by Pauline Hisbacq and Marie Quéau, “Cadavre exquis” was an installation by the two artists presented at the BAL during the Rolling Paper festival in 2019 and which took the opposite of the surrealist game of the same name.
