Hélène Delprat
I Did It My Way
I Did It My Way


La maison rouge presents in 2017 the first major exhibition in Paris of works by Hélène Delprat, an artist whose singularity gives voice to endless creativity andinventiveness. Inspired by literature – from Ovid’s The Metamorphoses to the contemporary novel by way of Mary Shelley and Virginia Woolf – film, internet databases, radio and press, each day brings new opportunity for Hélène Delprat to develop a sensitive and darkly humoristic art that takes in both fiction and documentary. Hélène Delprat’s work is about representation, memory, legacy and recording. The energy-images she proposes – whatever the medium – trigger constellations and offshoots, figurative and conceptual associations, inventories almost.
