Fabienne Francotte's work looks at what remains in the aftermath of trauma, abuse and migratory displacement. In Nature Morte, she situates the human body as the site of these afflictions. Working with abuse victims, Fabienne created this collection over several years, often informed by her creative workshops. These drawing projects took place in circumstances ranging from mental hospitals and children's development centres in Sri Lanka to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and troubled youth in Belgium. Nature Morte questions how we, as a society, speak about invisible wounds, hidden traumas and pervasive power structures in our communities.
Based in: Colombo
After 20 years of working with children in Belgium, the artist began her artistic practice with a course in calligraphy, a technique that is still evident in much of her work. Having exhibited her works extensively in Europe the artist moved to Sri Lanka in 2016 and continued to engage with communities across different social strata, allowing her to absorb her new environment and interpret these experiences into her first exhibition of works in Colombo, 'It's Like Someone Took My Soul'.
