Show Details

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 transformations veer from deeply moving to the dark and disquieting.

Born in Brazaville, Congo, Olivier 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 Nick Knight and 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 different meaning to the notion of life, offering captivating, disturbing, moving insights into the possibility 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
