Sabine Delafon (Grenoble, 1975) lives and works in Milan.
Sabine Delafon’s work ranges from photography to glass installations, from painting and writing to performance, passing through urban art. Art, identity, love and spirituality are the themes that intertwine in the search for her.
The main areas of her artistic research place the relationship between the individual and society and between the individual and self-awareness at the center of her poetics. She has always been fascinated by calligraphy, but through it she too reflects on values in art and values in general, paying particular attention to loving and religious feelings. Her practice is often conceptual and her modus operandi is focused on repetition, seriality; she also loves to let other people, other artists enter her projects. Her works take shape and meaning over the years, the time factor is therefore fundamental in her works.
