Sahara Widoff (born 1979) is a Swedish and Stockholm based artist and curator. At her
exhibition in Taverna Brillo Sahara is exploring the use of light as a changing materia, the
metamorphosis and the connection to shapeshifting in folklore. With the use of the light she
changes “dead” objects into something of a glowing mystery.
In her artistry she is also driven by bringing materials together into a form, distilling and
creating a context, to be working to something that feels cohesive. The process is starting
with a sense of fragmentation of thought and feeling and in her work, the creating, brings
everything back together somehow. For Sahara everything starts with the basic materials for
the piece that is being deeply reflective and inspiring.
Sahara Widoff has evolved into being an experienced curator, one of her projects in recent
years is a large Transdisciplinary exhibition for the Nobel museum. She is experienced in the
field of light and sound installations and has a background with design projects for Acne
Studios as conceptual director.
Her artistry is also involving a sculptural project involving plaster, crystals and video.
In short she describes herself as a creative and very curious nerd.
She is also an avid collector of art.
Tracing the essence of materials through their combination with others
is something that has always interested me.
