ELSA SAHAL
b. 1975 in Paris,  France

Sahal’s oeuvre and its forms are in fact in accordance with the idea of a primitive chaos that existed before the world was arranged into fixed categories. Her work establishes an era in which a tired and toxic masculinity gives way to other forms of being in the world. For her, a human being is neither man nor woman, but rather a spectrum leading to an utopian new world where the binaries underpinning modern Western philosophy (human/non-human, masculine/feminine, body/spirit, interior/exterior) are no longer relevant.
Elsa Sahal prefers entities that are tired, lying down, and influenced by their environment
(whether this is the marine world in her Fontaine ), or even baby pink, the color of girlhood in our globalized Western culture). The sculpture, an organ in decay, metamorphoses and reveals itself as unstable as flowing lava. The theme of the mutant body, which stretches, produces and ejects new forms, is notably addressed in a sculpture by the artist on the subject of maternity (Grotte généalogique, Geealogical Cave, 2006). Elsa Sahal (b. 1975 in Paris, lives and works in Paris, FR) graduated at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, FR. Has a MFA from École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Paris, FR. She was awarded by the French Institute for the Georges Coulon Prize for Sculpture.

ÜBER DEN RAND PINKELN ELSA SAHAL BEI SETAREH IN BERLIN

Verrenkt, gespreizt und akrobatisch – in Elsa Sahals Einzelausstellung “Female Factory” bei SETAREH zeigt sich, was der menschliche Körper so alles kann. Die Skulpturen der Künstlerin sind nicht nur beeindruckend schön, sondern auch angenehm provokativ. Ein spannender Blick auf Weiblichkeit und Produktivität.

ALLES EINE FRAGE DER FORM

Auf den ersten Blick käme man oft nicht darauf, dass es sich bei dem Material, aus dem die Skulpturen Elsa Sahals bestehen, die zurzeit in der Galerie Setareh ausgestellt sind, tatsächlich um Keramik handelt.
