Elissa Lacoste

BIOGRAPHY

Elissa Lacoste is a french designer and artist. She lives and works in Montréal, Canada since 2019.

Hands-on and instinctive, Elissa Lacoste’s work stems from her quest for the wild, the inexplicable and the sensorial within contemporary boundaries. Unconventionally textured and vibrant, her sculptural pieces linger between the real and the surreal while maintaining a hint of functionality. In her work, she evokes an otherness to reflect upon our relationship to our physical environment, be it anthropogenic or natural.
