Mummified Torture Victims… Olivier de Sagazan

Life is thrilling and dangerous, but also mundane. Olivier de Sagazan pulls inspiration from his African birthplace as well as his perception of human beings disguising the strange condition of our lives. In his words, we are “focusing on daily tasks, perhaps forgetting the poetry of this strange world,” and he sees his art as “a knife to open this mask and reveal the strangeness of being alive.” His sculptures, to me, appear as if they are mummified torture victims, people who were forced to embrace suffering, and then immortalized in a state of permanent pain. Screaming, beheaded and disemboweled, these sculptures are truly terrifying.
