1977, Bilbao, Spain.
Sádaba pursues her interests through photography and installation, 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.
She received her BA from the University of the Basque Country in 2000, her Master degree in Arts Direction from the Antonio de Nebrija University in Madrid (2001) 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,
