Helen Mirra: solo exhibition

Past Fellows Event

Rochechouart Museum is delighted to host the first major solo exhibition in France of works by the American artist Helen Mirra (99, 13, 15).

Helen Mirra has selected thirty works for her exhibition in Rochechouart, spanning a period from 1999 to the present day. They are specifically displayed in non-chronological order, emphasising especially her walks which she defines as an activity that is both humble and free.

The exhibition title “Du vent au vent” (From wind to wind) conveys poetic notions of impermanence and fleeting time. It also refers to the importance Helen Mirra attributes to her creative process of incorporation. She states that it is not about just “being in the wind but also about being the wind”. The word “vent” (wind) in the exhibition’s title evokes वात “Vāṭa” in Sanskrit, which means the airy life force or wind “that makes things move”.
