Most recently, Marie’s adventures included shipping the MacKenzie’s Punk Orientalism exhibition, which involved bringing 19 physical artworks from 6 different countries.

If Marie could have superpowers, she would choose either telekinesis (so she can move large crates with her mind) or being able to clone herself (so she can handle artwork and answer emails at the same time – and travel to Tahiti, Paris, and New York).
