Sabine Pigalle. Made in Yvrandes is the catalog published on the occasion of the artist's solo exhibition from November 17, 2022 to February 5, 2023 at the Hôtel du départment d'Alençon (FR) organized by the Fonds départemental d'art contemporain de l'Orne (Orne Departmental Fund for Contemporary Art) under the direction of Pierrick Bigot.
Born in France in 1963, Sabine Pigalle lives and works in Paris. The artist favors the photographic medium and is part of the movement of a new generation that navigates the murky borders of reality and ﬁction.
The main axes of her work question myths, heritage, the notion of time, collective memory, and focus around the portrait treated as a representation of shifted archetypes. Related to the Post-photography movement, she produces transversal works that hybridize paintings and photographs, ancient art and contemporary art, ﬁguration and abstraction.
