Hélène Muheim

Hélène Muheim lives and works in Montreuil. Of swiss and french origin, she spent her childhood in the mountains and in the Luberon, in Sénanque Abbey, a cistercian monastery and cultural center. She met visual artists, musicians, sociologists or theologians who likely influenced her vocation. After graduating from Beaux-Arts, she exhibits her paintings and creates site-specific installations. Simultaneously she creates vosdesirs.org, a virtual space for doing nothing, a field of graphic and poetic experiences.
It is through the digital line that she finds back the original gratification of drawing. She now devotes all her research to this medium, attracted by its fragility. As a child Hélène Muheim had the privilege to «watch ends of the world beyond the clouds, to perceive the vastness, and the obvious uncertainty of our beings.» From here she went to see further. From her lonely trips she learns through landscapes to reconsider our connexion to the world and to the image.
