Debut Album Tourjours Out Now via Naim Label
Catch Sabina Live in Manchester 27th April & London 18th April
The Brazilian Girls Singer Unveils a Pencil-on-Paper Collaboration with Artist Oliver Clegg.
“We filmed Sabina in her flat in Paris and then used to footage to create the backbone of the video,” says British artist Oliver Clegg of his collaboration with Sabina Sciubba on “Viva L’Amour.” Marking the release of the lead singer of avant-garde electro-punk outfit Brazilian Girls’ debut solo album, Toujours, this is his first foray into moving-image, made with the New York design studio, Eyeball. “I met Sabina ten years ago at Nublu in the East Village, NYC when the Brazilian Girls were playing regularly on Sunday nights at the venue,” says Clegg, whose work has showcased at Art Basel Miami, Saatchi Gallery and Venice Biennale. The animation uses rotoscoping, invented in 1915 by Max Fleicher, in which stills of a film are traced in a broken sequence to give an animated, hand-drawn quality. “I wanted the piece to be full of contrasts—humorous yet sincere, childlike yet sophisticated, direct yet enigmatic, says Clegg. “The choice of drawing was part of this consistency of opposites: the desire to create dimension and conceptual spaces out of the simplest descriptive tool available, the line.”
