Sculptress and painter Chantal Talbot (born in 1958 in Brussels) graduated from Brussels art school “Le 75” in Plastic Arts.
Her work has been widely exhibited: both solo and group exhibitions have taken her all over Europe, Japan and the United States.

In her work, she toys around with poetry. She invents her own archeology and sails toward her own imaginary world embarking on variations with the sea as major focus. Somewhere between nomadism and sedentarity, the sculptures, paintings, installations and publications are symbols of a mind that never settles and their multiple interactions are true invitations to accompany her on a particular journey.

Solo Exhibitions:

Chantal Talbot had several solo exhibitions of her work held in Belgium between 1984 and 1996 (Zedes Gallery, X Plus Gallery, Winance Sabbe Gallery), in France (Delange Gallery) and Japan (Tokyo Sagacho Exhibit Space).
