By using the different symbols that she normally finds in ordinary objects, Sara Jeanmougin makes a staging to show one Sara who could be an old woman or a young woman or an old man or a young man, an ordinary Sara, a peculiar Sara, no matter, what is important is her hidden interior, no more isolated in her search of identity, she presents Life or rather an allegory of Human life, in memory of her passages from childhood to adulthood, from a civilization to another, her search of Lost Roots.
One of the artist’s motivations is to make people think and look. « To look well, in depth, is something that is disappearing these days », she says. « One does not look at oneself. Lack of the look is one of the great problems of the human condition of today. »
