Silver print on aluminium 2mm. Hanging: Metal Rail. Emilie Chacon has tried to freeze 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 miracle, disappeared from American society - which, of course, is a decoy, just like the body of the Barbie doll.

Emilie Chacon’s photographs develop a universe where childhood continues as a liberating mode of artistic expression. The doll, preferably the Barbie, sometimes accompanied by her lover Ken, ensures an imaginary quest where fantasies and desires mix. The doll is invested through skillfully crafted staging from objects diverted from their original use to explore their dreamlike and playful potential sources of unusual meanings.

In a critical spirit, devoid of naivety, but not without humour and provocation, his scenes reveal the conditioning of our society from childhood, insidiously or directly, through the learning of rules, prohibitions and preconceived ideas. The doll embodies a certain feminine ideal promoted by capitalist society with its generous shapes and eternally smiling face. Adopting the pose of a fantastical reality, she sometimes engages with Ken in erotic games in a provocative nudity. Through this doll is expressed the exploration of a universe where female identity is not subject to prejudice because, in her photographs, desire reigns over play and enchantment can prevail over appearance.

His photos are the result of a long process of miniature sets and staging. No photo editing or faking.
