Hélène MoreauLe Bruit de l'échantillonneuse, partition de lecture
The Peinture Fraîche team is pleased to welcome Hélène Moreau for the launch of her collection entitled Le Bruit de l’échantillonneuse – partition de lecture, on Thursday 16 June from 6 to 9 pm. At around 7pm, the artist will put these reading scores into action through a performance and a reading of an extract from the book.
Le Bruit de l’échantillonneuse – partition de lecture by Hélène Moreau gathers visual assemblages as well as textual collages made since 2017 during reading sessions organized during the exhibition cycle. Through a subtle montage of excerpts from literary texts summoning construction, gesture and matter, the artist elaborates a device intended for different types of reading: public or private, group or solo, aloud or silent, while offering an insight into the sources and ramifications of her practice that allows the imaginary of her plastic proposals to unfold.
“The artist invites us on a journey into the very fabric of the narrative, evolving on the borders of a deliberately blurred dividing zone between virtual and real spaces, just like the images she produces.” (September Tiberghien, “Journey in the frame”, L’Art même, n° 85, 2021)
Hélène Moreau (*1985, Argenteuil) obtained a DNSEP at the ENSBA in Lyon and then a Master’s degree in research at the ARBA/ULB in Brussels where she lives and works. During several residencies in France and Belgium, she focused her practice on drawing and installation. In her latest pieces, digital prints and weavings allow her to play between the manual and the digital. Her installations assume a playful and narrative turn. They speak of architecture, objects, tools, grids, plans and open towards poetic imaginations.
