Le corps de la folie ou comment Unica Zürn échappe a Hans Bellmer
AbstractThe exploration of the self in the works of women associated with the surrealist movement is very often centered on the body. Nevertheless, the look these women present about their bodies is necessarily double: they seek to reproduce their own image while taking into account the glance put on them by surrealist men, — often their companions, husbands, friends. In this study we will focus on the fancy image disturbing and haunting that Unica Zürn, writer-artist surrealist, develops of herself, through the light of the artistic production of his companion, Hans Bellmer. Specifically, we will focus on how Zürn highlights some aspects of femininity celebrated by the surrealists and represented in L’Homme-Jasmin (1970), not only the exaltations but also a suffering feminin body and mind faced with madness.
