From freak shows to the invention of hysteria in the 19th century, the figure of the monster is created by the image. The staging of abnormality reinforces the norm to which it is opposed. By means of self-representation, I try here to make a m
onstrosity out of the banal, by making my body a malleable and fragmented material. With reference to scientific or anatomical iconography, I try to deconstruct normative representations of the body in order to construct new ones. To what extent is a body a body, and how can it free itself from the norms that constrain it ?
