Liv Strömquist Dans le palais des miroirs
In the pages of In the Mirror Palace, Liv Strömquist analyses the contemporary ideal of feminine beauty, developing her reflection in five different parts that explore this subject from a different angle. Liv Strömquist examines the reasons for the success of the influencer Kylie Jenner, evokes the biblical myth of Jacob, Rachel and Leah or the setbacks of Empress Sissi, lingers on Marilyn Monroe’s famous last photo shoot or analyses the character of Snow White’s stepmother. These are all themes chosen to tell us about the mimetic desire that drives us to imitate one another, the close link between appearance and love, the way women are photographed today, the changing relationship between age and beauty and how the self-image can become a cumbersome burden. In her usual sharp, ironic and funny style, Liv Strömquist draws on a host of historical figures, actors and TV stars as well as philosophers, historians and sociologists.
