           > Melt. A site-specific dance installation by Noémie Lafrance.
in The Visual Artbeat, Limited Edition for Art Collectors, Issue #5, November 2010


Eight dancers perched on a wall and wrapped in sculptural beeswax and lanolin costumes are slowly melting away, progressing in euphoria and exhaustion as if approaching the sun, melting until their souls escape their ephemeral bodies and disintegrate into light.
