Polysémies, un livre autour de l'œuvre d'Hélène Duclos



A book to understand what takes place during the creative process.

A tool to make known this art work to art professionals, institutions, museums, and art galeries, in France and abroad.

An introduction to set the subject among the artist's territories :

Hélène Duclos is a researcher.

This is the very simple origin of the project.




This book intends to present the artist's researchs and is considered to help the spread of this very particular and prolific art work. It is also and mainly dedicated to art collectors to whom you are part of : you'll be kindly invited to discover the paintings, the drawings and the embroideries all along the printed book. And you'll surely be charmed by the rich art work and the diversity of all the explored territories*.



*A word or an expression is polysemous when it has at least two different meanings. In French, territory is polysemous.









During the fund raising, the artist whishes to perform an original and participative art piece. Polysémies will be coming from your financial words contributions and the artist's brain. Please send a keyword to Hélène Duclos (contact@helene-duclos.fr), related or not to her works, all languages accepted (except names and surnames).


She will perform a limited printed and monochrome graphic piece of art, an undoubtedly polysmous one ! Please enjoy and be creative : Hélène Duclos is a challenging artist ! This art performance will be done after the fund raising and silk-screen printed. It is one of the counterpart, here on the right.








... takes a BIG place in our hearts, the editorial team bets on the future : we love Hélène Duclos's art works and those art pieces have to be shown.


This project started also from the artist's strong will to share her creative process and the graphist designer intention to realise a what we call Beau Livre in French in total accordance with Hélène Duclos spirit. It's also and finally the publisher will to perform the BObook Publishing House first book around an artistic universe she loves and wants to share.


We definitely need you to achieve this project with the fervent wish to embark you on this exciting adventure.
