CHANTAL LACOUT

As a child, Chantal Lacout played with clay, and had an obsession with owls.
Years later, she lived in the 14th district in Paris, not far from Giacometti’s
studio, and was drawn to the artist and to his work
which continues to influence her own.
She studied art at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts, before continuing in various studios
run by the city of Paris. She soon participated in numerous exhibitions in France
and abroad,
and started showing her work in different galleries, selling to collectors and
to museums.
Over the years, Chantal Lacout has instinctively explored a variety of styles
and technics, but the recurrent theme of the couple has remained continuously
visible in her work.
The titles given to her sculptures often bring to mind Paul Geraldy’s book of
poems «Toi et Moi». They provide the means for her to explore feelings which
reveal all phases of the couple.
At times, a solitary figure creeps into the cluster of couples, giving a new
dimension reflecting a certain loneliness.
Her sculpture gives substance and visibility to the emotions that dwell within
us, enabling us to appropriate and preserve a particular moment of our life.
In personifying what is universal to the human soul, Chantal Lacout captures
eternity.
