The common – or better said, golden - thread of Hélène Hubert’s photographic work is the energy that animates still lives. She captures singular light impressions which disclose this blurred zone between the object, its reflection and what it represents. The artist searches all the spaces in which the objective reality reveals a secret which might not appear at first sight. Above all, it is the vibration fields of an object and / or a situation that invites the photographer to trigger her artistic sense through a lightning flash, an impulse or an emotion.
Tuned up to this frequency in her now virtual darkroom, Hélène Hubert dusts her photographic file with the tip of her stylus bringing out the infinitely small, the infinitely visible, “the one visible “- literally - « l’un visible » as defined by the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan on the existence of three levels, the Real, the Symbolic and the Imaginary.
Her images, reveal the evanescent manifestations of the internal reality of her subjects, focusing to render this perceptive intensity, all connected within the same material: life.
