ÇA RESTERA ENTRE NOUS (2016)
Reclaiming our bodies from the pornographic and bulimic mainstream demands that we speak openly about our experiences and identifications … Instead of reproducing the image of the woman-plastic as a unique representation, the comics propose to unravel the oppressive modes and explore other aesthetic possibilities and stories that tell new narratives about our sexualities.
