Blandine Hallé is a French-born artist and jeweller, based in Perth, Western Australia.
She grew up in Paris and moved to Western Australia in 1997, where she earned a Bachelor of Commerce from Curtin University and an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery Design from Central Institute of Technology, Perth. In addition, in 2017, she received a Postgraduate Diploma of Contemporary Applied Arts at the Massana School of Arts & Design in Barcelona, Spain.
Blandine has exhibited in Australia and internationally and is the recipient of multiple awards. She also recently delivered the Connexions exhibition at Parcours Bijoux in Paris, as project leader in 2020. This exhibition will be presented in Perth, Australia, for the Indian Ocean Craft Triennial in 2021.
Blandine sees matter as a language. When she creates, each element takes its place in relation to others to find meaning – a space is punctuation, a silence in which to breathe.
Traversing urban or natural landscapes she collect things – objets trouvés – with her hands, or through her camera lens. Once collected, she brings these objects, and images, into her studio to construct her narrative. Her artwork is a commentary on her emotional, cultural and sensory experiences as a French-Australian, expatriate and migrant.
