Hélène Latulippe; Souvenirs consignés
ATELIER-GALERIE A. PIROIR
5333 avenue Casgrain, suite 802, Montréal, H2T 1X3, Canada
Inspired by the writings of Joan Gibbons and Marcel Proust, my work investigates the way our emotive memory functions and changes our perception of the world. Hunting down remnants of recollections, I reshape and reorganize them to bring an emotion to the surface with which the viewer can identify.
On first viewing the work appears to be identical. But as one studies it more closely, each engraving, every line begins to reveal its unique writing, conveying its own singular poetics. Available to all is the delight of discovering a secret and of interpreting its personal meaning.
