Intro
Orfèo invites you to see the jewels of Helen Britton & Dominique Labordery and the sculptures of Marc Ricourt.
Helen Britton:
I create in my work collisions of design, Baroque, reduction resistant assemblages. There is a lot of pleasure here, and also a measure of aggression seeking it’s meaning in the present, walking directly out of my lived daily experience. Making jewellery, I play out the tensions and beautiful collisions of my practice in a small complex space. I am happy to think that these little things then find their way back out into the world and into peoples daily lives. I like the idea that they too will become worn and at some point perhaps even discarded, returning to be crunched again through the great geological and chemical machines of the universe, in an act of infinite transformation. These objects are romantic, but also explorative and direct; collisions of elements from the chaos and order of lived experience. 

Dominique Labordery:
My jewellery requires movement, analysis and contemplation. It needs to be discovered again and again. My intention is to combine graphical forms, clear structures and sensitivity of colour. This expression of form is created by precise craftsmanship, using traditional techniques and a mix of materials. Each piece of jewellery is a world in itself, allowing space for individual interpretation ...

Marc Ricourt:
For a few years now, I've based my work around a simple but very essential object, as it was the first tool created and used by mankind: the vessel. Useful, yet mysterious, the closed vessel symbolically holds all mysteries and secrets of the human soul. I strive to find perfect harmony between wood, shape, texture and color. The utilization of unrefined material such as rope, horn and shells inlaid reinforce a sacred and symbolic sense of keeping as much purity as possible.

My work on vessels has allowed me to develop a relationship between ancient or geographically remote cultures and civilizations and modern creation. The most important facet of my work is the research and exploration of new forms, colors, textures and finishes.
