Interview: Elisabeth S. Sandikci
Luca Curci talks with Elisabeth S. Sandikci during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2021, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Elisabeth S. Sandikci is a contemporary artist, photographer, and interior designer, who lives and works in Munich, Germany. At the heart of this ambitious artist’s work is the modern world, society, and its behavior. Thematically, much of Elisabeth’s work deals with racism, gender equality, and homophobia. Elisabeth S. Sandikci translates her ideas into large and small-scale works alike, with the central theme being the use of abstract faces. Her paintings taken out of normalcy are kept in bright, metallic, gold, silver and pearly color palettes. They are deep and strong compositions with lots of beauty and presence. Her works combine surrealist elements with an emphasis on equality and human nature. Elisabeth S. Sandikci focuses on the so-called outsiders (in terms of their skin color, ethnicity, religion, sexuality) and wants to create a kind of motivation for each of them through her work. In her art, everyone exists on the same plateau – equally beautiful, with equal expectations of inviolable rights, and obligations. Her art embodies a call to action for greater tolerance, love, and peace among people.

LCWhat do you think about the organization of our event?
ES – The organization was great, no delays, friendly stuff, beautiful exhibition interior.

LCDid you enjoy cooperating with us? 
ES – Very much, many thanks for everything.

LCWhat are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
ES – In terms of Covid, I would kindly suggest you to present each artist’s works on social media and your website during the exhibition so the art could be sold also online and not only to the physical visitors of the exhibitions. Because also for us artists the pandemic time is not easy, so by paying exhibition fees and international delivery costs we would like our artworks to reach as many people as possible to get sold.
