From January to March 2018, school residency by the artist Hélène Moreau with students of École Saint Morand and Collège Lucien Herr, Altkirch.
Eleven sculpture-objects made after the artist's first visit to the region give rise to a sharing of interpretations as to their possible functions. Students’ stories and reflections progressively produce a database of interpretations feeding into their own art production.
Hélène Moreau lives and works in Brussels. Graduated from ENSBA Lyon in 2009 and graduated of a master's degree between Arba-Esa and ULB Brussels in 2011, her work starts with a questioning around the notion of design and construction. After various residencies in France (Maison Daura residences in Midi-Pyrénées and Astérides in Marseille) and Belgium (RAVI residence in Liège) between 2011 and 2014, she focuses her practice on drawing and installation. A TAMAT research grant in Tournai in 2016 enabled him to include weaving and digital collage, as techniques and materials, in his plastic proposals. The forms that are produced are often an articulation or tension between imagination and rational. In 2019, she presented her work at Progress Gallery in Paris as well as at Été 78 and 1.61+ in Brussels.
This residency received the support of DRAC Grand Est—Ministère de la Culture et de la DAAC—Académie de Strasbourg. It was led by Jeanne-Claude Mori and Christelle Grivel, teachers.
