Fabifa, All and Nothing , 2020
gaffa tape, duct tape, aluminum composite panel, 73x80cm, 2020
The artwork portrays a woman in a state of deep contemplation, situated in a timeless space. The woman is portrayed with serene features with the striking detail of the woman’s double pupils, which appear to be gazing both into the past and into the future simultaneously. Upon closer examination, it becomes apparent that the woman is depicted with four hands, each in a different position. Two of her hands are resting on her lap, while the other two are raised, as if in a state of offering or meditation.
The lines on the contour of the woman’s figure are reminiscent of waves, which seem to echo and repeat her shape in an abstract and fluid manner. The use of light and shadow adds a sense of depth and dimension to the image, further emphasizing the woman’s introspective mood. The combination of these elements creates a powerful image that suggests a deep connection between the woman and the natural world, and invites the viewer to contemplate their own relationship to the universe.
Overall, the artwork serves as a reminder of the importance of reflection and contemplation in our lives. It suggests that we should take time to pause and consider the world around us, to look both back and forward, and to recognize our place within the grander scheme of things. It is an image that inspires both peace and contemplation, and invites us to consider our own relationship to time and space

Born and raised in conservative Belarus, Fabifa discovered a new found freedom when moving to Berlin in 2015. The city‘s open attitude provided a perfect platform for self discovery and reflection which she shows within her art.
Her body of work captures harmonious moments, aiming to reflect her subject‘s sensations and feelings, in a perspective from which she is in control.
A further focal point is Fabifa’s aesthetic preference and perception of beauty. We see examples of scarification, tattooing and clear depictions of Fetish elements all of which trigger positive emotional responses within her.
Fabifa’s material of choice, tape, has powerful connotations to fetish in itself. With it’s shiny, smooth surface it reflects other frequently fetishized materials such as latex or leather. Coupled with her use of sharp, bold shapes and vibrant colors, she visually enhances the way in which she communicates her ideas and perceptions with the viewer.
Fabifa uses tape art as a political protest, as an expression of her personal and sexual freedom. She sees most of her art as a tool of communication that is supposed to raise awareness to political justice, equality and self-expression.
“My work brings up social and cultural questions, by examining traditional, popular and subcultures, notions of freedom and how these influence and form society.
I close the gap between social stereotypes and open new ways for people to perceive different cultures in a globalized world.
Graphic rawness and clarity of lines are delivered through the properties of tape, my primary medium. My preference to this aesthetic was subconsciously influenced by USSR propaganda art and later in life, in stark contrast, by pop and comic art.
Ironically the function of tape to ‘stick together‘ or bond lends itself perfectly in combining two opposing sources of inspiration. Essentially, my purpose as an artist is to embody the tape’s characteristic to make bonds and unite different ideas.
Furthermore my recent color palette has been greatly influenced by Ultraviolet glowing corals and sea creatures in correlation with the urban night life of a modern metropolis.
Human existence and perception are at the center of my work with the exploration of creating a blueprint of the future human.”
