Lockdown Bestiary

The almost defiant comic style and black humour ridicules the absurdity of the situations caused by this crisis, and this form of expression is basically a form of resistance to the marked uncertainty facing a collective ordeal involving in addition issues regarding public health, economy, social matters and ways of thinking.

Sabine Pigalle is a French photographer and an artist. She was born in Rouen in France in 1963, and now lives and works in Paris. Pigalle studied at Sorbonne University and worked with Helmut Newton for four years focusing on fashion photography before moving on to more personal projects.

Most of her work concentrates on the reinterpretation of myths. Religious history, mythology, Flemish primitives painters, and also mannerism provide both the varied sources of her inspiration and the raw materials for artistic explorations. Sabine produces hybrid photographs in different series, mainly dedicated to the art of portraiture, that combine the contemporary with references to ancient art.
