Du 7 oct au 16 déc 2023 - Exhibition - FLEURY-LA-MONTAGNE

Exposition "Esprit du paysage"

The painted silk is as translucent and fluid as the river that flows past Hélène Jospé's studio, and its colours change with the seasons, like the reflections on the water.

Hélène Jospé has an affinity with the traditional culture of Japan, where she has spent time. The four seasons of our climate are present in her painted fabrics, just as they are on the moving surface of water. She has made her own an age-old printing technique practised in West Africa, the Middle East and Asia: batik. She also practises shibori, a Japanese dyeing technique in which the resist is obtained by binding the fabric. She speaks lovingly of fabrics, naming each one by name, and also of the thread, braids, ribbons and embroideries in her studio; she celebrates needlework. She sews unusual garments that keep alive the memory of her encounters in Algeria, Morocco and Syria.

At the Pavillon, in addition to painted fabrics, she exhibits sumptuous aprons that seem destined for the giant mothers of our childhood.

The preview will take place on 7 October from 3pm to 6pm.
