Sabrina works mainly with video, installation, photography and mixed media assemblage. She moved to London in 2007. Since then dislocation and isolation have become main subjects of her work. She carefully records the unconscious stair of the human mind, which randomly captures and stores. Her works are beautiful beguiling amalgamations of fragmented constructions of juxtaposed images, weathered objects, photographs, materials, sounds, spaces and times. She tries to create a non-narrative yet nostalgic and melancholic experience for the viewer. It is like piecing together a puzzle by running through a maze of memory lanes. Through this montage, she makes her viewer struggle to make connections, assimilate meanings and get immersed in the process of identifying the familiar /unfamiliar/known/unknown, building the feeling of estrangement and loss. Her self-referential works are tinted with concerns of identity, memory, melancholia and loss.
