Si le nez de Cléopâtre..

"Si le nez de Cléopâtre..." investigates the process of constant rewriting and “correction” of history and the forces at play that take place during the process. The project centers on taking the figure of Cleopatra as a metaphor for this practice and looks at how, as a historical figure, her image has been defaced and “refaced” in Western collective imaginary.
