Sabine, o del femminile in azione.
“La mia donna” (My woman), cellphone holder, 2018. .
Such is the name given to Sabine’s latest creation.
Certainly a coincidence… one rich in meanings.
Unraveled meanings, preserved perhaps in the work that over all these years Sabine has braided into her daily life and that manifests in the world in many, diverse ways.
That which she takes from the world, she gives back to the world, sometimes by means of daring syntheses, like a sea-segment hanging from the ceiling that forces you to admire it by just looking up, like a gentle prayer not to ever give up on what’s wondrous or on the daring endeavour to change points of view.
She inhabits spaces with all her senses agape. She approaches matter with respect and discretion, ready to register the slightest vital heartbeat in order to entwine it into her own life and give it back conjugated in categories of beauty, or in order to push onward until she crosses the borders of what is useful.
Wide-awake attention inhabits her gaze, capable of picking up the minutest detail, and that accuracy moves her hands to lay on the object that portion of her life that reveals creative élan and translates into a new story-telling for the careful, curious listener.
Sabine, or female-ness in action – female-ness inhabiting the world to make it a home unto itself, but especially for others; female-ness materializing as a lap that cradles a host of souls and transforms places into gentle laps for generations of forms and shapes that come forward thanks to the most diverse and impalpable types of matter.
Our wish is that she may never stop telling stories, whatever stories. We await her voice, grateful for the stories unveiled before our eyes.
