Helene Schlumberger was born in France and lives and works in the United States. She has an undergraduate degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Helene is interested in sculpture as a tool. Her experience of social displacement informs works that deal with translation and the bridging of human connectivity over physical distance. Her sculptural works, sometimes interactive and sometimes reliant on visual metaphors, are often made in common building materials, and many are like stages anticipating their performers; their potential is realized when people use and activate them.
