Oct 17: Ghislaine Sabiti – Interdisciplinary Artist on Fashion, Design and Exhibiting Art

Bio

Ghislaine Sabiti, an interdisciplinary Congolese-born artist who was raised on the outskirts of Paris in France. She was introduced to art at a very young age. At twelve years old she studied fine art at Atelier Chantier du Coq and graduated with honors in fashion design from Atelier Chardon Savard in Paris, France.

She highlights the technical form used in both Congolese and European arts, which stress form and color. Her works develop projects between communities and collecting fractured narratives for social change through identity.

Her experiences of inter and cross-continental migrations developed her sensibility to cross-interculturalism.
