About the Artist

Viviane Le Courtois (born in France in 1969, lives and works in the USA since 1994)

Viviane Le Courtois creates process based and conceptual installations since 1989. Her art often intrigues visitors by connecting art to everyday life while commenting on social and global issues. She used 185 pairs of shoes-sculptures with the action of walking since 1991. In 2004, she invented the process of etching with Kombucha. Recent projects include participatory installations to bring people together around current issues.
Viviane graduated from the Ecole Pilote Internationale d’Art et de Recherches in Nice, in 1992. She has been a Korea Foundation Fellow (1993), a Colorado Mastermind in the Visual Arts (2009), a resident artist at RedLine (2008-2011), a creative in residence at the Denver Art Museum (2016). She is the co-founder of Processus, an experimental co-working artist space in Denver with Christopher R. Perez in 2014.
