About Jacqueline Doyen
Jacqueline Doyen (b. 1978, Nice) currently lives and works in Berlin.
Jacqueline Doyen´s constructions recall sort of extensions of the body, similar to the head-holders used in the early XIX century photography. Such an apparatus helped portrait subjects assume immobile poses during long periods of exposure. Similarly, her structures instruct the body to get into a position and support it in order to hold the pose, allowing its transformation into a picture.
When in a performance, these works allow the viewer to 'witness’ the real body posture frozen as in a tableau vivant. The reenacted pose explores the theatrical dimension of the body seen in its physical absence while leading the viewer back to the corporality of the experience.
Displayed in the exhibition, these structures remind familiar devices or theatre props which one may perceive as artefacts of a still open process and suggest the possible intervention of the viewer. These installations investigate the potential to physically reenact, or mentally explore the sculptural dimension of the body. Each piece 'describes’ a specific pose that gives the visitor a diverse awareness of the body, environment, and realtionships involved. Once poses are reconstructed upon the picture, they draw inspiration from associations recalling collective unconscious and imagination might be generated and unfold. The familiarity of the pose, its evidence and origin come under active consideration and scrutiny.
Jacqueline Doyen holds a BFA from Ecole Pilote Internationale d′Art et de Recherche, Villa Arson (2002). In 2005, received her MFA from the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig (HBK), Braunschweig.
