Lives and works in Cucuron

Hélène Bertin sees art as a gathering, in that her works are as equally attached to social value as they are to use value. Straddling customs and techniques, she seizes the opportunity of artistic projects to encourage human relations. Each of her exhibitions or books becomes a space for teamwork, during which skills and stories are led to intertwine. Amateurs and enthusiasts come together as a team to make up a tale. The biennial firing of Bertin’s ceramics is a celebration of working collaboratively around the wood kiln. With a focus on clay, her sculptures emerge as the result of experiments linked to her research on games, rituals and marginal figures.
