It's about swapping the stereotypes of sweetness and strength between men and women. It's about calling masculinity and femininity into question, asking "who are we to decide whether someone should be this or that".

I wanted to reverse the roles of gender, of gentleness and strength, between men and women. 

Nine portraits of young women, symbolizing the nine muses of Greek mythology, but also utopia, crossed in the dreamy and sure eyes of the girls. The front portrait, facing us, is central to the polyptych. The other portraits give a movement towards the outside, ending with the profile to the left and to the right. All of them have marks of paint on the cheekbones, like rugby players, whose different colors represent as many different personalities. 

Then come seven portraits of young men whose beards are flowered. They represent Apollo, the Greek god of masculine beauty, as well as solitude. All seven watch with a distant air, in the same direction, representing as much solitude in their quasi-identical pose and their sad resemblance. The multicolored flowers represent the different personalities, the gentleness, and the hope for a creative renewal.
