DER Sabina uses video and photography to create artistic projects that could be described as total performance. The artist inhabits a “role”, immersing herself in a given character as part of an all-inclusive existential experience, which goes well beyond the mental and physical effort of body art as it is traditionally understood. DER Sabina has been a globetrotter, a Thai boxer, a Fitness model, and so on. Now she is a television personality. Each of these roles corresponds to a personification of DER Sabina – not an alter ego, but a new self, produced through performance each time
