I select or invent processes and materials to fit each concept from multimedia installations to sculptures and original etchings. Intrigue and curiosity call visitors to explore new environments, traces and collections. Some installations may recall displays in science or anthropology museums. Process based pieces include series of sculptures created by the movements of everyday life including an ongoing series of worn minimalist shoes (183 pairs since 1991). I obsessively accumulate and transform conceptually interesting, useless but precious objects.

Many of my works indirectly comment on global contemporary society including wastefulness, environmental negligence, digital invasion, pharmaceutical foods or lack of observation. Addictions, collections or obsessive attachments to useless things such as food residues, single socks, empty pickle jars, junk food, weeds, plastic bags or junk mail fascinate me. In recent projects with weed roots, potato peels, dryer lint and single socks, I collect useless objects from my Facebook friends referring to changes of priorities in contemporary society. Collaborations and interactions with others are an essential part of the process. In recent interactive projects, I bring visitors to socialize around food and handmade objects. I am interested in social and experimental forms of art, in art that blends with life and makes people think.

My art is a series of experiments, chance discoveries and reflections on everyday life. For me, if people remember what they see, it is art.

 

Viviane Le Courtois creates process based, conceptual and participatory art since 1989. Her installations, performances, sculptures, videos and prints often intrigue visitors by connecting art to everyday life. Her works often comment on social and environmental issues. She has traveled in over 40 countries using 183 pairs of shoes as a sculptural performance. In 2004, she invented a non-toxic etching process using Kombucha.

Viviane Le Courtois was born in France in 1969. She moved to the US in 1994, and currently lives in Denver, Colorado.

In 2012, she presented her first solo museum exhibition: Edible?, 22 years of working with food, at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. She has since created site specific interactive projects for the city of Boulder, the Biennale of the Americas, the Denver Art Museum and Neo Rio. She was an artist in residence at RedLine from 2008 to 2011, at Sustainability Park from 2011 to 2014 and at the Denver Art Museum in 2016.

She is the co-founder and conceptual director of Processus, Institute for Art and Life, a co-working space for artists. Processus opened in February 2015 in collaboration with Christopher R. Perez.

Générations D’épluchures
2011
Générations D’épluchures (Generations of Peelings) Inspired by memories of my mother and my grandmother peeling potatoes for hours to provide basic food for their family, this piece comments on women's time-consuming labor through times and places. I filmed myself peeling potatoes and also collected peelings from friends through potato potluck events. Various versions of the video-installation was exhibited at RedlLine Denver, the Williamsburg Art Center, Brooklyn, New York, The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Colorado; and the Islip Museum, Long Island, New York.
