Claire Hannicq

The idea of combustion, or rather the after effects of burning, envelops Claire Hannicq’s work. Across her artistic practice, there exists a notion that while fire is capable of destroying branches and dry wood, it quickly burns out, and is ultimately extinguished. This leaves behind traces of ash and blackened wood, ideal crayon materials that can be used within her later projects.


Claire Hannicq received her diploma in Decorative Arts in Strasbourg and the ÉSAL-Épinal in France. She has exhibited in France, Spain, Sweden, Japan, and Canada at the Galerie Engramme in Quebec City. Hannicq lives and works in Strasbourg and Besancon.
