In the context of the representations of the show Le problème avec le rose
Me is an exhibition that brings together a selection of works drawn from the Petite collection, each reflecting on the notion of identity. In opposition to fixed, binary conceptions, Me invites visitors to consider self-representation as a game, an equation, a composition, a secret recipe, an abstraction… The exhibition highlights the role played by costume, experimentation, multiplicity, invention as well as self-affirmation in the ongoing construction of the way we view ourselves.
