USA' SOUL

Numbered and signed edition - Edition of 5 and 8 ex

In the USA 'SOUL series, what did Emilie Chacon try to capture if not, like her previous series, the great clichés, the great myths, from which the history of the United States was built? These myths, of which the Barbie doll is, in a way, the summit, are those of the consumer society, of the great movement for the equality of peoples (for the liberation of blacks, Indians, Irish, Mexicans, etc. .), in short, all the political myths that would have us believe that all the problems of inequality, injustice, racism, segregation have, today, and as if by a miracle, disappeared from American society - which , of course, is a decoy, just like the body of the Barbie doll.
