Hélène Baril is a Parisian based artist. After getting an MA in literature, Hélène quit her job teaching French to study art. Moving to Finland, she began a career painting houses. Recently, she’s been developing a tale involving racecars. In 2011, she created Orlandus Gallery, inspired by a fictional Finnish painter and racing car driver from the early 1800s. The artist also served as inspiration for SBK, an autonomous organization Hélène founded in 2012, which used her repainted car for meetings and as a working tool. In 2014 she worked in collaboration with anthropologist Michael Taussig in the piece The Sea Theater.
