DER Sabina

Genoa, 1975. Lives in Milan

DER Sabina (Sabina Grasso) uses video and photography to create artistic projects that could be described as total performances. The artist inhabits a “role,” immersing herself in a given character as part of an all-inclusive existential experience, which goes well beyond the mental and physical effort of body art as it is traditionally understood. DER Sabina has been a globetrotter, a Thai boxer, and so on. Now she is a television personality. Each of these roles corresponds to a personification of DER Sabina—not an alter ego of the artist Sabina Grasso, but a new self, produced through performance each time.
