"Charlotte el Moussaed invests her relationship to identity through the quest for a right positioning to observe her environment, to find a place where it is possible to welcome, to relay, or to generate a link and to give it meaning. The narrative aspect is linked to the presence of the body, or by contrast, to its absence. This is how Charlotte EL Moussaed's work flirts with performance, so much so that it is a question of experiencing the different ways of inhabiting the image, of appearing and disappearing, of being embodied or ethereal, of finding "modes of existence" in her relationship with the other.1 Noémie Monier, Le Chassis #5 1 Etienne Souriau, Les Différents Modes d'existence , PUF, Paris 2009, quoted by Vincianne Despret in Au bonheur des morts, récits de ceux qui restent, Les Empêcheurs de penser en rond, Paris, 2015
