“Dance is something we all do, whether we know it or not,” says Klym. “Climbers, when they rappel into
the Grand Canyon, use the same techniques dancers use to land gracefully from a jump. Lovers perform
a dance when their bodies merge. Words dance. Language is the choreography that joins reader to writer
in a dance that obscures the distinction between human and text, the dancer and the dance…You, the
reader, have your own life, your memories and imagination, which become intertwined with my life, my
memories and imagination, through the fiction I write.”

Artist Marie-Hélène studied Mathematics, thus her precise compositions and fascination with systems. While the spirals are often measured out, there is an organic quality in the way Marie-Hélène creates her art. Different tinctures of patina are applied directly to the copper sheets, which then chemically react and change into earthy primary colors. On top of these, Marie-Hélène adds paint, pieces of metal, and finally a thick layer of glossy resin, sealing each piece and giving them the appearance of having been preserved for ages.
