    How do you exit life when you have loved it so much ? This is a story about a facetious old Irish lady who is forced to leave her home and her past life behind. Abandoning all reason she is nevertheless obliged to take a step towards her final address in the midst of watchful eyes and anxious family members. Here commences an honest and ironic face to face with solitude, past memories and physical dependency while in the background looms her hunger for freedom and a life that she refuses to give up....

     

    "De ma naissance irlandaise, j’ai gardé le goût des grands espaces, des landes dévastées, des ciels lavés par la mer, des nuages gris au goût de sel.

    J’ai atteint un âge presque canonique, beaucoup trop avancé pour que la décence m’interdise d’en faire part, bien qu’au fond cela me soit complètement égal."

    Le secret de Xinmei

    Xinmei's Secret

    Children book, 35 pages

    Couleurs de Chine Publishing, 2014

     

    Xinmei is a young Miao girl. Every night, she has the same dream... this secret dream which she shares with her younger brother Shun and an encounter with the village witch, Lao Li, takes the children on an adventure filled with poetry and a quest for justice. At the end of their journey Shun and Xinmei will discover that a mother's love is stronger than anything else and will never die.

     

    "Je m'appelle Xinmei, j'ai dix ans. Le village où je vis se trouve perché au sommet des grandes montagnes Miao. Quand le ciel devient gris et que le brouillard descend, j'ai parfois l'impression que je pourrais toucher les nuages."

  • Hélène Le Chatelier

    Hélène Le Chatelier studied Art in Paris at l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art, Olivier de Serres, where she specialized in Fresco painting. Since her first painting exhibition in Paris in 1997 soon after her graduation, Hélène embraced various artistic modes of expression (painting, sculpture, photography, installation, writing).

    Working mainly in black and white, Hélène questions all aspects of memory, the idea of the passage of time, and the traces it leaves on our bodies. She interrogates the secret and unconscious parts of ourselves, as well as the way we attempt reconciliation of our collective and family histories with our individual memory.

    Hélène has spent a great deal of time in France and Ireland. She currently lives and works in Singapore. Her work had been showcased in Singapore, Bangkok, Paris, Seattle and New York.
