Hélène Delprat

Inspired by literature such as Ovid’s Metamorphoses, cinema as in Melville’s Les Enfants Terribles and the culture of radio, Hélène Delprat’s work explores the questions of recording, memory, identity and travel. Through a daily practice which includes techniques such as painting, photography, archive, video and drawing, Delprat develops a body of work filled with self-derision. She equally humors the idea of death as a funny, monstrous, outrageous and melancholic event. Fundamentally Delprat’s works come to function as a sort of Book of Hours, where fiction and documentary intertwine, being simultaneously dark and sensitive.  

Hélène Delprat (b. 1957, Amiens) lives and works in Paris. Recently her work was shown in a solo exhibition at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen as well as at Musée Picasso, Paris. She had a solo show at la maison rouge, Paris, in June 2017, and in September 2017, a monograph "Hélène Delprat, les travaux et les jours" has been published by Dilecta. Previous exhibitions include Musée Gustave Moreau, Paris; Jeu de Paume, Paris; the Hors Pistes Festival at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Galerie C3, New York; Maison des Arts Anthonioz, Nogent-sur-Marne; Musée de Belfort, Belfort; Orangerie du Musée, Limoges; Centre d’Art, Montreuil; Institut Français and Parc de la Ciutadela, Barcelona; and Centre d’arts Contemporain, Istres.
