Fabienne Francotte

Fabienne Francotte (b. 1959, Belgium) exploits the possibilities of fabric, metal and clay in her engagement with the aftermath of trauma, abuse and migratory displacement. Her work often draws from her observations and experiences of people around her, including her own – transgressing the boundaries of culture and social and economic classes. She has also been writing since 1972. Journaling stories, memories, collecting feelings and souvenirs, recording a manifesto about a nomadic life and the many communities met on the way. Today she has 86 diaries.

Since shifting to Sri Lanka in 2016, she has concerned herself with a range of social issues present in Sri Lanka such as education, the business of sex, and religious tolerance. Her training as a calligrapher is visible in her drawings which exhibit a similar ritualistic execution, balance and controlled gestures and composition. Fabienne’s work has been presented at several solo and group exhibitions in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy and South Asia.
