Olivier de Sagazan

Olivier de Sagazan

Male

b. 1959, Brazzaville


For more than 20 years, Olivier de Sagazan has developed a hybrid practice that integrates painting, photography, sculpture and performance. His performative series Transfiguration (1999, ongoing) is at once disquieting and deeply moving, and collapses the boundaries between the physical, animalistic and spiritual senses. He has exhibited widely in galleries, museums, and film festivals internationally. His performance is featured in the non-verbal film Samsara (dir. Ron Fricke), and Discarnate (forthcoming, dir. Mario Sorrenti).
