About

French painter, sculptor and performer, Olivier de Sagazan annihilates his own identity with clay and paint to become a living artwork. At once grotesque puppet and puppeteer he morphs from human to animal to astonishing hybrid creatures. His transformatson bveer from deeply moving to the dark and disquieting.

Born in Brazzaville, Congo, De Sagazan has performed in the US, China, India and throughout Europe.  Featured in the 2011 movie 'Samsara' by Koyaanisqatsi cinematographer Ron Fricke, in videos with best-selling  French singer Mylène Farmer, and recently in London in a collaboration with photographer Nick Knight and fashion designer Gareth Pugh on the fashion film presenting Pugh’s S/S 18 collection. His forthcoming movie appearances include Mario Sorrenti's supernatural thriller, 'Discarnate', and Bartosz Konopka's historical action film, 'The Mute'.

'Transfiguration' gives a differnt meaning to the notion of life, offering captivating, disturbing, moving insights into the possiblily and unpredictabilities of who we really are ' "Disfigurement in art is a way to bring us face to face with real life". Olivier de Sagazan. London premiere.
