Hélène Hulak et Guillaume Seyller - normale tropicale

Hélène Hulak et Guillaume Seyller
normale tropicale

Hélène Hulak et Guillaume Seyller is an artists duo working with painting and Virtual Reality. They share a commun research around the questions of the body and its representations as long as a certain taste for darkness. Their collaboration produce a strange cosmology, populated with flashy monsters traveling from drawings to paintings, passing by VR installations and 3D scenes.

extract of Un entretien en cohue concerning the artist

Alain
Hi ! As I was saying in my last email, I’d like to engage in an unformal conversation around your collaboration and the French Hair project. So if you let me play the question / answer game, I’d like to start with a very commun but none the less important question. Both of you have a practice engaged in a singular way, yet your collaboration seems to reveal an identity of its own, which is the sign of a successful encounter. Could you get back to the origins of this encounter, to the elements which led you to engage in a commun work ?

Guillaume
Hey ! Well, we know each other for a few years now, and I think what gathered us was the wish to work together and spend some time on a commun project. Moreover, our concerns meet at several points. We essentially work from the body, of its image or perception. We have a a common lure for darkness, and we can stand Lana Del Rey which has been a key factor in the success of the project !

Hélène
Hi Alain ! My turn to try to answer. So yes, to begin I think there was a desire to work together without thinking of the form this collaboration would take. On my side there was also a desire to get out of the loneliness of producing alone. I think what was in stake for both of us all along the project, was to get out of our own creative habits and still find ourselves in its final form.

…by guest curators invites four curators each year from international digital art galleries, online spaces, biennales and festivals to present online projects and commissions for a period of three months. Each curator is encouraged to showcase artists within or outside of their networks, and to experiment with the platform and how they present projects. This strand of AOS initiates conversations with similar spaces globally and contextualises our work on an international scale.
