Transforming old postcards
of The Grand
into contemporary, colourful
works of art

The French artist Léopoldine Roux is known for drawing on elements of reality to create an imaginary universe. Since the early 2000s, she has been expressing her playful view of the world in brightly-coloured paintings, sculptures and installations. Through her artworks, Roux explores the relationship between form, colour, time and space.

Using old postcards of the former ‘Le Grand Hôtel’ in Nieuwpoort, the artist manages to give a memory from the past a new future. The contrast between the weathered vintage postcards and the added value of her colourful additions symbolises the restoration of splendour of a bygone era. Instead of just having nostalgic value, the old postcards become relevant once again. This idea of redevelopment is mirrored in the ambitious restoration of ‘Le Grand Hôtel’, which aims at giving this historical gem a new purpose.

Léopoldine Roux was born in Lyon (France) and has lived and worked in Brussels since 2003. She teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts Jean-Jacques Gailliard in Brussels.
