In uttering the words ‘any means necessary’, Sabur frees her practice from ties to any single medium. This is why her immersive installations, integrating performance, film and sculpture, are so hard to categorise. This is why they yield such instinctive and visceral appeal.
Sabur’s works look towards temporal existences, memories and immaterial realms as points of departure from the corporeal, creating transcendent experiences for the viewer.
Born in Jamaica and now based in Miami, much of her work explores localities through recurrent motifs and images across places and times. Her art distorts and blurs boundaries between countries, challenging notions of belonging, in her ability to transform and make a spectacle out of the gallery space.
