Texte de Yuna Mathieu-Chovet
Helen Anna Flanagan & Sybille Deligne are particularly interested in the elusive realities and invisible forces that are at work in nature, human activities or materials. Helen Anna Flanagan began working with photography, moving towards movement and performance. Her videos explore her curiosity about human behavior, how it is influenced by context, cultural and affective constructions, with a keen interest for group dynamics. She is inspired by both her experience and knowledge of neuroscience, sociology and philosophy. Through the work of Sybille Deligne, light and movement are expressed. At the center of her work are the qualities of the materials she works with. Her sculptures are both a result and a process she invites us to observe. She develops a particular attention to organic and invisible materials and lives. The attraction of these artists for the dynamics of physical, chemical, social and political behaviors is embodied in their practice by an experimental approach close to the scientific procedure, highlighting latent organic processes and structures in motion.
