Franco-British artist Charlotte Colbert’s practice spans photography, film, ceramics and sculpture. Her photography combines elements of the surreal with a documentarian approach, blending the boundaries between reality and fiction with long exposure shots. Her work often captures spaces in states of ruin, such as dilapidated buildings in London.
Colbert is a screenplay writer and director; her first feature film She Will was released in 2022, following two shorts released in 2016 and 2009. Her practice also encompasses ceramics and sculpture, including digital sculptures that incorporate video screens.
Her work has been shown at Art Basel, as well as Somerset House, Saatchi Gallery, Messums Wiltshire, and Gazelli Art House in London and Baku. Her 2014 pieceIn and Out of Space, commissioned for Frieze to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s death, was placed on public display on the facade of 90-94 Piccadilly in London.
