For Amélie Berrodier, the entrance gates are a reflection of the mysteries revealed by encounters with her models. They illustrate this moment of the encounter when a part of the unknown is revealed, where she spent a first entrance airshed to find herself in front of this door, receiving new clues about the person she is about to discover. 

Amélie Berrodier considers this recovered object as a portrait in which the wear of the door, the typography chosen for the plate, its size, its layout on the door, the name of the owner are all constitutive elements of this identity Abstract.

By choosing to exhibit this work, the artist continues his research around the portrait but also plays with the exhibition space. What does this passage in the exhibition mean? Is it real or fictitious. Where does he take us? The viewer is invited to imagine the space behind and to dream of a meeting with the owner of this door.
