Fatine-Violette Sabiri

Fatine-Violette Sabiri is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses photographic, tactile and traditional craft mediums. Her practice is autobiographical and is often based on specific personal narratives. Sabiri’s body of work acts as storytelling, sometimes existing as a testimony to her own experiences of community and intimacy, other times as a gesture acknowledging the shifts in culture and tradition post-migration. She cultivates the importance of intuition, adaptation and humour throughout her practice, whether it be with her personal projects or her more collaborative fashion-oriented series. Her work is fueled by memories of connection and attachment, whose prominent themes are love, hybridity, language, resilience and desire. Born in Casablanca, Morocco, Fatine-Violette Sabiri lives and works in Montreal, Canada. She holds a BFA in Studio Arts with a Minor in Film Studies from Concordia University. Her work has been presented in several solo and group exhibitions, including Joe Project (Montreal, 2022), (Montreal, 2017), Jedna Dva Tři Gallery (Prague, 2020), the plumb (Toronto, 2021) and Le 18 (Marrakesh, 2021).
