Elisabeth Lecourt – les robes géographiques


A paper map transformed into a day-dress?  Not wearable, of course! They are made only to be watched. The one on the image and some more pieces. It’s the fantastic work of Elisabeth Lecourt. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art ( MA RCA, London) in 2001, Lecourt (French, born 1972, Oloron Saint Marie, France) is becoming a recognised contemporary artist.
