Capucine Bourcart is a French-Vietnamese artist, born in Alsace France. She currently lives and works in Harlem/NY.
Bourcart’s mixed media assemblages and photo collages employ a wide range of techniques, informed by her own multicultural background and the work of artisans explored through extensive travel. Bourcart’s practice although based in photography early on in her career, has expanded beyond the boundaries of the medium and includes the creation of the artist’s own alphabet and the formation of patterns, essentially creating a new language.
Primarily a self-taught artist, trained in New York at the International Center of Photography, where she was also an Assistant Teacher. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Boston, Colorado, Oregon, North Carolina, Missouri, France and Switzerland.
