Ixone Sádaba (Bilbao 1977) is an artist who lives and works in London. She received her MA from the University of the Basque Country and a Postgraduate Diploma from the International Center of Photography in New York. Awarded with the Generation 2011 Prize and a Finalist of the Sovereign Art Foundation Prize in 2012 among others, Ixone has exhibited at international Art Museums, including the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, Reina Sofia Museum, MoCCa Contemporary Art Museum in Toronto and the Museum of Contemporary Art of New Orleans.
Sádaba pursues her interests through photography, installation and performance art, constantly exploring the limits of the individual and violent nature of mankind.
Usually portraying what she describes as “Political Scenarios”, the work of Ixone Sádaba takes a double stand to photographic practice. Sádaba presents an analysis of the typology and of the formal and physical development of representation as a construction of observed matters. Furthermore, photography acts as a field study through which Sádaba questions the dimension of glance, over and beyond the regulatory framework that defines or pretends to define an image. Her research focuses on the limits of the individual as well as on the tensions immanent to the ideas of identity and agency.
