Gloss Comfort – Hélène Bellenger and Charlotte Perrin

Type: Exhibition

After a visit in 2017 by 3 bis f’s Artistic Director, Diane Pigeau, a mutual interest developed to create a project which promotes active and fruitful collaboration between both organisations, by supporting an exhibition of French artists in the UK. GHAT proposed a collaboration with 3 bis f, the first French contemporary art centre in a hospital, to work with Hélène Bellenger and Charlotte Perrin, and support them to deliver their first UK exhibition.
Hélène Bellenger and Charlotte Perrin met during a six-month residency at 3 bis f, located in the psychiatric hospital of Aix en Provence, France. They developed their artistic research from their first meeting in January 2020, and their two distinct artistic practices gradually converged. The collaboration resulted in a dual exhibition and an artist’s book, both titled “Plaisir Solide” which launched in April 2021.
“Gloss Comfort” continues their collaboration in a new setting introducing them to a new audience. The work for the exhibition is a combination of selected artworks from “Plaisir Solide” and newly commissioned site-specific artwork for The Suttie Arts Space. The new exhibition in The Suttie Art Space has been inspired by the gallery space itself, the context in which it sits and how visitors use it. The Artists play with themes specific to the space in their exhibition.
This project was funded by Creative Scotland and 3 bis f as part of GHAT’s Amplify Project.
