Françoise Janicot (Paris, France 1929 - Paris, France 2017). Janicot first approach to art is through painting, a practice that she will abandon when during the '60s she will join the feminist movement in France and chooses photography as her main form of expression. Married to the sound poet Bernard Heidsieck, she will portrait many of the experimental poets and performers of the time from Julian Back to John Giorno, William S. Burroughs and Charlotte Moorman. At the beginning of the '70s she realized one of her most famous performance "Encoconnage" that would have been an important symbol of the France feminist movement, she would wrap herself from head to toe with string while a sound poem of Heidsieck would be performed.
