TO SLEEP TO DIE, NO MORE
Solo exhibition with the French artist Hélène Delprat at carlier | gebauer. This will be her first comprehensive exhibition with the gallery. Primarily known as a painter in the early days of her career, Delprat withdrew from public view in the mid-90s for nearly fifteen years to immerse herself in a series of “submerged practices” — namely writing, drawing, scenography film, radio, documentary and video. The breadth of Delprat’s creative practice attests to an omnivorous curiosity. She bends time-periods, genre, and the limits of taste to craft a conceptual and pictorial universe that is as immersive as it is idiosyncratic from a vast archive of literary, historical, film, and pop cultural references.
