Lives and works between Paris and Toulouse. Holding a HND degree in Photography, Jeanne Ménétrier is currently studying in Toulouse completing a Bachelor Degree before a Masters Degree in Arts.
Her artwork is opening up onto multiple reflexions mainlly about femininity as well as the dimension of genre. She is always injecting a further research on photography, her medium of expertise.
lnterpretation paths of her artworks are often mundled as the use of blur and double exposures are volontarilly grasped and used. ln the series called Vanished Women, the artist shows the woman's body without imposing seduction codes on it and aiming at displaying another aspect of femininity. This series constitutes the starting point of an ongoing research towards assertion.
ln this sense, she choses in Autoportraits to photograph her own body thus becoming the place of her own questionings, disagreements and above all a place of possibilities. She does not look to exhibit how men and women are treated differently. She rather offers an alternative showing that each woman can live her femininity and her own masculinity as she desires. Her self portrayals only represent a door inviting every woman and man to live her or his femininity and masculinity in her or his own way building new codes leaving aside the ones we have been imposed for too long.
