Remèdes Galerie is proud to present a selection of Hélène Guétary’s recent work from the ZEITGEIST and THE MASKED WORLD series.
Hélène Guétary, a humanist, freedom-loving artist, has been busy visiting the threatened wonders of our world. Armed with her imagination and poetic vision, she has broken away from the general gloom to infuse our commitments with hope. Using costume and masks to convey a playful theatricality, she calls our attention to the fragile beauty of Nature, our places of Culture, and the nebulous outlines of our values and our freedom.
Coming out of the first lockdown, in an attempt to ward off the universal spell that had descended upon us with the pandemic, she decided to reclaim the primordial functions of the masks in a new series of self portraits, the Masked World.
Far from isolating us, her masks make us consider again what’s around us through poetic celebration: to bless the return of Spring, to denounce the loss of our freedom, to revere nature, to stimulate our ecological awareness, to defend literature…
With a simple red drape, Hélène Guétary leaves a mysterious army of Zeitgeist in her wandering wake. These sibylline guardians engage us through their singular presence and invite us to join them in watching over our precious treasures.
