This painting is part of the "Body and Soul" series of works. The artist questions our relationship to the body, its fragility, and the transience of our existence. The sides of the canvas are very thick (7 cm) and painted, they are part of the canvas and reveal the reason for the title of the work: "AINSI SERONS NOUS WI OU DEMAIN" The artist was inspired by a text engraved on the forehead of small ivory heads dating from the 14th century. One side of the heads shows a human face, the other side shows a skull after the worms have gnawed away at the flesh, a kind of memento mori - literally a reminder of death and the brevity of life. The skull was the symbol of death from the 1500s onwards. Before then, death was represented as a skeleton accompanied by a living victim. The painting can be posed as a sculpture or hung on a wall.

"Cécile Duchêne-Malissin’s paintings seem to play on two registers, reality and fiction. First observation, a composition that expresses meditative abandonment, loneliness." (...) The artist expresses herself "with her plastic and expressive strength, her faces, her bodies adorned with an original applied material, of which she knows how to express through introspective drawing the melancholy, solitude, hope and truth of human nature. "

A.W. for "Les Affiches-Moniteur"
