A Franco-British multimedia artist whose work straddles film, photography, ceramic, and sculpture, Charlotte Colbert likes to conflate reality and fiction. With a background in philosophy and an interest for language, psychoanalysis, and the socio-political constructions of gender and identity, Colbert blends the surreal and the fictitious with the realness of her documentary creative process that seeks to reveal the truth and the most intimate emotions that lie beneath the surface. Two of her most iconic works, Benefit Supervisor Sleeping (2017) and Mastectomy Mammeria (2019), are currently featured in the online exhibition Her Dark Materials.
