MA Media Arts: Manchester Metropolitan University, UK – 2006

Anne-Laure Franchette is an artist currently working in Zurich. Anne-Laure is interested in using transmediality in her story telling. She explores different vehicles of representations (photography, installations, writing, sketches, pyrogravure, embroidery, etc.) to create multiple modalities of experience. Anne-Laure work reflects western society’s fantasies of the unfamiliar and its consumption of other cultures by looking at exoticism, contemporary myths or stereotypes.

Anne-Laure presented work with James Currie for Units, Moveable Feast Bothy show (2015), in conjunction with the Embassy Annuale Festival here in Edinburgh this past June. Anne-Laure has exhibited in Paris, London, Liverpool, Sydney, Manchester, and Zürich.
