Selected Artworks


Charlotte Colbert is an award-winning filmmaker and multi-media artist.

Her work has been shown at galleries, art fairs and institutions internationally, including the V&A, Montpellier Contemporain, Frieze & Art Basel. Charlotte Colbert’s surreal and iconic work sits in the same psychic vein as Toomer, Dalí, and Breton,” Phaidon.

Her critically acclaimed BIFA-nominated directorial debut feature film, She Will, produced by Dario Argento and starring Alice Krige, Kota Eberhardt, Malcolm McDowell, and Rupert Everett, premiered at the London Film Festival and won the Golden Leopard for Best First Feature at the Locarno Film Festival. It was the New York Times’ Critic’s Choice and was described in Variety as “A Superb, Sly Horror-Drama Debut Delivering Otherworldly Feminist Vengeance” and the Evening Standard named her “a natural born magician.” Alfonso Cuaron wrote “it sits in the tradition of great psychological thriller […] which leaves one questioning long after the film is finished” and Guillermo del Toro praised it describing it as “a visual feast.”

In addition to her feature films, Colbert has also written and directed award-winning short films, including The Silent Man with Simon Amstell and Sophie Kennedy Clarke, The Girl with Liquid Eyes, and short films with Bill Nighy, Maryam d’Abo, Ben Miller, and a surreal cameo by Cillian Murphy.

Her latest installation Dreamland Sirens was curated by Simon de Pury and UTA and shown during Frieze London. Alongside monumental sculptures, it included a sound collaboration with celebrated composer Isobel Waller-Bridge. “Colbert conjures fantastical worlds by blending the boundaries between reality and imagination,” writes Rachel Hajek of the Design Museum.

Her work has strong philosophical undertones and often questions narrative, time, identity, dreams and the unconscious. The surreal and fantastical become a way to look at our world afresh and find the space to question and reimagine.
