Retrospective of an artist exclusive in her own way at the Musée du Jeu de Paume: Cindy Sherman. This American woman, 52 years old,  has handled her talent to photograph herself for more than thirty years, carrying out a marathon of evolutionary self-portraits completely renewed with the liking of its inspirations. This solitary photographer, without assistants nor small hands, observes herself in her new yorker apartment and composes several series sets of themes around the broad topics of civilization. Under the expression of her phantasms, her body becomes clay. She makes it up, deforms it, caricatures it, referred to the cinema, with painting, carves the light, indecency, derision. A series of mannequins suggesting the love act becomes more obscene than true real bodies. The Musée du Jeu de Paume gathers today its first stereotypes in black and white, declining her direction of the exhibitionism and the transvestite, other photographs sometimes morbid, sometimes smiling. The woman remains simple until today, even if her photographs can reach several hundreds of thousands of dollars in the auction sales, even if many museums already acquired some fragments of the work of that which is and remains one of most immense contemporary American artist photographer.
