The inspiration

Elisabeth Lecourt has reproduced a vintage map and folded it into the shape of a dress. The artist makes dresses, shirts and even kimonos out of reproductions of antique maps depicting destinations as varied as New York City, Nepal, St. Petersburg and the Moon! Lecourt describes her practice as 'trying to make something beautiful and precious and this is the thread that runs through my work '.

Signed and sealed E.L. Elisabeth Lecourt 2017.

The work is presented in a transparent perspex frame with metallic wire at the back and is ready to hang.

The artist

Elisabeth Lecourt is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. Her newest body of work is entitled Les robes geographiques in which delicate dresses and shirts are constructed out of meticulously folded antique maps. In her own words the series acts as “a portrait of people through their clothes, like a blue-print of their soul” and says that ‘sensitivity and vulnerability’ are central to her work: with the titles inspired by French poems and books from her childhood. Elisabeth first studied art at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Pau and also has a masters from the Royal College of Art and a post graduate diploma from Central St. Martins.
