Les confessions is a recent project that reflects Sophie Jodoin’s ongoing preoccupation with the interaction of language with images. While books act as raw material for the work, language functions as its mode of articulation. Through a series of feminine surnames, Les confessions chronicles a plural (her)story. As both declarations and silent testimonies, these multiple voices form a collective portrait, a rewriting of women’s social and political bodies where the reader is invited to fill in the voids.
