Fabifa, Confidence, 2020


gaffa tape, duct tape, aluminum composite panel, 60x68cm, 2020

The artwork Confidence describes the internal state of the depicted girl boldly looking forward in the hope of conveying a sense of confidence and motivation to the viewer. The bright colors of the artwork convey a positive attitude, and the abstract lines on the right reflect the vibration of the contours of the girl’s face, while the corals at the back symbolize symbiosis with the environment and the calmness of the sea

  • 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.”
