Since 2014, she has developed within the collective LGGSB a practice centered around women, healing and an active rewrite of their own history, through an understanding of reality through the prism of adolescence.
Today, Sabrina's interested in the links between education, childhood and utilitarian design, between sets and installations, art and music. Through furniture, sculpture, video and performance, she looks at the otherness of memory to unveil the links between power, fascination and art. Her work often combines references to the history of painting - utilitarian design, lm, as well allusions to her own history and social identity.
She has recently exhibited solo in Milieu (Bern), in collective Lucerne, Lausanne and Milan and prepares projects for residency and exhibition in New York and Paris. Last year it was possible to see one of her performance at the Kunsthalle Zurich or at les Rencontres de la Photographie (Arles).
