I - it was someone else" . It is the Twenty-second exhibition at Louis Vuitton cultural space dedicated to the study of the unknown and ever-changing landscape of the self, from the familiar shores of the "I" to the discovery and understanding of the Other.
Category Otherness is universal and affects both our relationship with the world, and in the construction of our own identity. Despite the fact that the participants in the exhibition represent many different countries and have very different backgrounds, they share the existential question of the Other. Pierre Molinier, French painter and photographer who was born in the city of Agen in 1900 and died in Bordeaux in 1976, shooting self-portraits in drag. Thus we find the expression cult of androgyny. In his dramatic works of Francesca Woodman with fragmented images of the body demonstrates the multiplicity of the "I," which blurs and fades as a result of endless divisions.

It looks a little more Marie Antoinette than maternity, but then again, this is the man who wanted to see the Duchess in a Victorian-style, open-fronted wedding dress complete with knee-high boots.
