Hélène Soubeyran


« Breath of earth »
Exhibition featuring stratigraphical blocks of her past artworks (folded fiber, dyed and petrified). Ten years were needed to create this single block intended to be sawn. Driven by a strong desire to connect the past to the present, death to life, the artist has sawn his textile works, ephemeral set in resin, longitudinal and cross sections in the form of pillars, blades and fragments. a strong personal work and somewhat disturbing, a hundred miles from the textile tradition.

Benin


It is the art of the royal court of the Kingdom of Dahomey. Each sovereign chose characteristic allegories used to identify him.
The patterns used to recognize the king through his deeds, his qualities, his ancestors ...
The hangings were an intelligence service (the pathfinders described the scene with a view of the conquests), the art of sewing clothes, headdresses and umbrellas, a book of history dating back to the early 17th century, and the presentation of contemporary culture, particularly voodoo.
Napoleon III received three hangings from the king Ghézo in 1856. The figurative motifs are applied with invisible stitches on plain fabrics.

Congo - « Kuba »


The « Kuba » are pieces of applied raffia and weaving velvet. The peoples of the Kuba confederation live on the banks of the Kasai River in southern Congo (DRC), and the craftsmen are among the best in Africa. Their textile repertoire is very extensive : appliqué, embroidery, velvet. The dyeings are mineral and vegetable based of padouk or kola nuts for red, sulfur trees for yellow, ferruginous mud and coal for black and brown, Kaolin for white. Finally, we note the extremely varied geometric patterns : bars, chevrons, squares, diamonds, triangles, circles symbolizing the finger, the smoke, the back of the crocodile.

The Kutch - (India)


Of this region, on the borders of India and Pakistan, it is said that « this is the world of embroidery ». Indeed, for centuries, each community, Hindu or Muslim, embroidered symbols of its life with points and colors. Codified and yet personal, this expression is always extremely refined.
After having been threatened by mechanization, it is now finally coming back into fashion.
