Corinne Lecot is a visual artist who lives at Brussels, Belgium.
She creates bright and sensitive artworks at the border of testimony and pictorial expression and uses the photographic medium as a means to examine the perception of reality, as well as the place of man in his environment. Corinne Lecot’s photographs are not portraits of people but snapshots of real situations, to which she brings an often mysterious, graphic dimension. Since 2005, after having explored all kinds of artistic practices, she has focused almost exclusively on photographic projects that seem to better translate her vision of the contemporary world.
The themes of displacement, flows, crossroads and trace are frequently referred to in Corinne Lecot’s work, who is particularly interested in the movement of people, trade goods and knowledge as well as in the sharing of cultures, without neglecting traces left behind while "passing by". The photographic series Travelling specifically illustrates the flow of transport networks and the movement of travellers in transit within a specific space, the underground, where stories of men and women collide.
Her work has been shown in galleries and cultural institutions since 1996, both in Belgium and abroad, as well as in international fairs like Toronto, Miami, Paris, Karlsruhe, Brussels. Her works are also displayed in public and private collections like the Ministry of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, Ministry of Belgian Foreign Affairs, Museum of Contemporary Art at the U.L.B, BNP Paribas Fortis Art Collection, AXA Art Collection.
