Elisabeth Lecourt

Born in 1980 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Elizabeth Lecourt was born in 1980 in France. She lives and works in London where she studied art at the Royal College of Art, between 1999 and 2001.

She tackles issues such as sensitivity or vulnerability. On the other hand, femininity appears as a crucial element of his universe. Lecourt's work is a work of revelations; she uses minor daily life events in her works, that encompass tales, drawing, painting, embroidered handkerchiefs and sculpture.

She creates "The Geometric Dresses", a line of dresses made from road maps. Her paper works recall childhood memories through unique forms and color tones. Her works are an extension of her thoughts.

"I feel like a surgeon when I gives form to a dress. The paper is a very fragile material, but it can be very resistant sometimes. I love to fold and wrap it, I trust it because it always does what we want it to do in the end."
