LINOUQ

From four years, Capucine Bourcart walked every street in Manhattan, from State Street to 220th Street, taking photographic details of walls along her route. This collection of photographs was used to create a photo-assemblage made of 4,170 metal squares that hang from a chain link fence in a design inspired by those of Native Americans. This installation, called LINOUQ, can be found at Thomas Jefferson Park.

Meet the Creator

Originally from France, Capucine Bourcart has called Harlem her home for the past 11 years. With Vietnamese origins and growing up in Alsace (the Germanic region of Eastern France), her multi-cultural background has led to her curiosity and inspired her creations. As a mirror of human diversity, she has acquainted herself with different cultures by living abroad and traveling the world.

Her collage technique strongly conveys her mixed origins by using cutting, layering, stitching, etc. She is fascinated by details, colors, and textures and is inspired by personal interactions, social issues, and both urban and natural landscapes. She structures her creative process with visual fragments and themes that she collects in her daily life, travels, and relationships. There is also humor in her work, to create distance and enhance the impact of the chosen theme.

Primarily self-taught in photography she has refined her skills through classes at the International Center of Photography in New York, where she was also an Assistant Teacher. Her work has been exhibited at and purchased by private collectors and museums in Europe and in New York. She was an award-winning artist at FLUX Public Art Projects in 2016 and received the UNIQLO Park Expressions Grand in 2017."
