About

Colette Lumiere, better known as Colette is a multimedia artist known for her pioneering work in performance art, street art and the constructed photograph. She is also known for her work exploring male and female gender roles, her use of different guises and personas and for her soft fabric environments where she often appears as the central element. The "Colette is Dead" series, was an ongoing conceptual work and parody to the solution of the dilemma of a contemporary innovative artist. In January 1978, Colette already a well known and wildly imitated by the commercial world, staged her own death at the Downtown Whitney Museum and transformed herself into the "Reverse Pop" artist Justine. As president of the Colette is Dead,Co., Justine placed products inspired by the dead artist's personal image into a commercial arena; by posing as a recording star,an interior and fashion designer, conceptualizer of products, and the head of Colette’s estate. She was born in Tunis, Tunisia, and grew up in Nice, France before becoming a naturalized American citizen. She lives and works in New York City. Colette’s work has been exhibited in or is in the collection of major museums such MoMA, The Whitney, the Guggenheim, The New Museum, PS1, LA MoCA, Musee dart moderne Paris, the Ludwig Museum Cologne and others.
