Olivier de Sagazan

Olivier de Sagazan

French artist, painter, sculptor and performer known for visceral performances using clay.

Born in the Congo and based in France, Olivier de Sagazan integrates photography, painting, sculpture and performance to create his mesmerising and existential performances and sculptures. He is most famous for ‘Transfiguration’, a series in which he layers and moulds simple materials onto his own skin, evoking an incredible sense of violence and destruction without actually causing any damage or harm. Sagazan’s work has been exhibited internationally, including a performance at the 2016 Shanghai Biennale.
