Structures of Reverie

Artist Statement

“Thus my body builds around it room after room.” — Marcel Proust

“This is the story of a woman who invents her freedom by creating an imaginary architecture made of light, scraps of memory, hopes, and dreams – a permeable architecture where nothing is confined.

It is dedicated to Juana La Loca, the supposed ‘mad’ queen of Spain in the 16th century who for political motives was imprisoned for 46 years by her father, husband, and son in an architecture of darkness and stone.”
– Josephine Sacabo

Josephine Sacabo divides her time between New Orleans and Mexico—both places inform her work, resulting in imagery that is as startling and surreal as the places she calls home. Using alternative and traditional techniques, her photography has been featured in gallery and museum exhibitions in the U.S., Europe and Mexico. Sacabo has been the recipient of multiple awards and is included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, the International Center of Photography, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and la Bibliothéque Nationale, Paris, France.
