Julie Curtiss' 'La Femme Secrète' Is Part Art Sculpture, Part Treasure Chest

Made from walnut and ash wood.

French artist Julie Curtiss explores identities once more with her latest work, titled La Femme Secrète. The piece was made exclusively for Case Studyo and is crafted out of ash and walnut wood, depicting a faceless woman’s head with luscious locks of hair.

Curtiss’ piece engages its owner as it also comes with a secret — it is part art, part treasure chest. This puzzle-like sculpture comes apart to reveal an interior cutout that can be used to store small personal objects, creating a connection between the owner and their edition of La Femme Secrète. 

The piece measures at 11.8 x 10.2 x 8.6 inches and is limited to just 16 editions, as well as four artist proofs. Each are signed and numbered and come in a wooden screen-printed box.

The proceeds from one of the editions will benefit Artist Relief, an initiative that offers financial and informational support to artists affected by COVID-19 across the United States. Take a closer look at Julie Curtiss’ La Femme Secrète for Case Studyo in the gallery above.

Elsewhere in the art world, Isola Press has unveiled its latest project — a 12,000 slide photobook that captures the radical community of East London in the 1980s titled, The Rio Cinema Archive Book.
