What creators say
about Creators Chambers and their experience being featured.
Brussel & Okayama
potter for Axel Vervoordt
“It is probably one of the most typical things to say as an artist but it is true that lots of creators are not good in words. As a potter I often work alone. Wedging clay, throwing it on the potters wheel, trimming, glazing, loading the dried works in the kiln and finally firing. All those process I do it totally alone most of time. There are a lot of dialogues between I and the materials or the tools in those processes. There is so much depth in each of those dialogues. I keep finding new meaningful things endlessly from them.
And I think that there is no need to explain about the dialogues to anyone. Because I believe that my work itself will contain and somehow imply all those memories of the process on its presence. And that’s enough, I believe. On top of that very simply I just don’t know how to translate the “language” I use for the dialogues. However my belief or excuse is I still understand that usually people won’t be able to read much of the memories simply by looking at the work. And it must be interesting for them to see a bit deeper than what they think they see. At this point I feel that the necessity of a mediator to help the translation of the dialogues.
And here she comes. Hélène comes up with her natural curiosity and the skill of clearfying with words which would help for the translation. In my case during the interview her questions made my thoughts so clear in words surprisingly. I think that’s not only because of her considerable questions but also her passion you feel during the session. You feel her curiosity towards your work. And after a while you would also sense that she wants to create a better situation for the creators in the society. And you feel that she loves what she does. She is a creator herself, too, in the end.
It is fantastic idea to have a good community of creators to inspire and to support eachother. And I’m sure that Hélène‘s creativity and the website of Creators Chambers could do something about it and bring people to better understanding to our work.”
“Hélène of Creators Chambers made a video portrait of me as a visual artist. She takes the time to film, in her relaxed atmosphere I felt free to be myself and sometimes even forgot the presence of her camera. She responds to what she observes on the spot instead of sticking to a well-defined plan. Because of this I felt part of her creative process and there was room to create things and moments (something I like very much as a visual artist). During the interview she asks original questions that give both myself and the viewers insight into my creative process. She knows exactly what she needs to capture to make the video into an atmospheric and captivating whole and I am very happy with the result.”
London & Antwerp
potter & painter
“Working with Hélène for Creators Chambers has been an experience of firsts for me. Talking directly to a camera wasn’t something that I was accustomed to, but she made me feel very comfortable and at ease, making it a good experience and one that I won’t forget easily. At times I forgot that she was even filming and we were having a very organic conversation with one another, a chat.
I was touched to receive feedback from friends, family and viewers that they felt an overwhelming sense of emotion whilst watching the video that Hélène captured so naturally, something that is not easy to accomplish. She truly captured a sense of home whilst I was working in my studio, and I am very pleased with the result.
What I have gained from this experience is more confidence in my ideas, to openly talk about my practice without fear of doubt or contemplation. I look forward to taking a virtual step inside fellow creators studios or workshops and to learn from their interests and passion.”
The Hague (Kunstmuseum)
fashion & textile conservator
“Working with Helene and Creators Chambers was very easy from the beginning, both of us understood very well which message was meant to be translated from the job that I do. She gave me the confidence enough for feeling free during my work and I forget that someone was recording me. I am very pleased with the result and I hope that people would be able now to know what a fashion conservator does in any musuem in the world.”
fine art painter, visual artist
“Working with Hélène Mulder was very rewarding in every way.
For the first time, Creators Chambers produced a visual story remotely. My husband, photographer Peter Christensen, and I filmed many sequences. Hélène directed and edited everything into a film. The way she guided and directed us was impressive. It quickly became clear that Hélène knows where she wants to go, which was very helpful in the realisation. Nevertheless, she left us a certain amount of freedom, which was important for our creativity.
I always felt that Hélène had a very good sense of how to present me and my work on film. Her incredible curiosity about artists and their work is great. What a valuable job Creators Chambers does in shining a light on artists! And Hélène does this with incredible joy and humour!
Hélène’s experience as a storyteller, filmmaker and creative was valuable and we were able to learn a lot. I am very happy with the result! It shows an honest and authentic picture of me and my work as a visual artist.”
