fruits of an artistic collaboration
between Helene Dauga and Gerard Findji.
Alchemy : transforming paper into bronze.
Giving the strength of bronze to paper,
giving the fragility of paper to bronze.
Giving the density of bronze to paper,
giving the weightlessness of paper to bronze.
Giving mass and substance to a vacuum,
to better grasp, better appraise it.
Bringing together two age-old arts
that had not yet met.
Experiments in time, in rhythms,
changing the scale of time: giving the age of bronze
to ephemeral paper.
