FABIENNE FRANCOTTE b.

Belgium-born artist Fabienne Francotte’s practice began 17 years ago while studying calligraphy. The careful composition of writing demanded a strict, ritualistic approach built on strong gesture and balance. This discipline, along with the rigor of a decade spent at the Royal Conservatory of Dance in Brussels under Maurice Béjart, became the foundation of her artistic language. Today, dense, intentional lines have given way to fluidity in her works. Now, it is her subconscious that directs the movements of her hand. Often inspired by the people she meets Fabienne Francotte interprets the chaos of the human condition, unrehearsed.
