In her artistic approach, Marie-Hélène Le Ny gives a voice to female researchers, professors and engineers, reflecting on the place of women in the predominantly male scientific professions. Through these portraits and testimonials, the artist aims to introduce the public to the world of science, encourage the exchange of ideas and stimulate creativity.
Montpellier women share their passion
Among more than 140 portraits, Sandrine Bardet, Francesca Casoni and Isabelle Parrot each describe their job at the University of Montpellier. Experts in fields as diverse as management sciences, medicinal chemistry and wood mechanics, all three share a passion for science and innovation, as well as a desire to pass on their knowledge.
