  • About the artwork

    Sancko est une artiste peintre autodidacte, street artiste et performer engagée née à Orange en 1974.

    Petite fille de militants communistes d’un côté, et arrière petite-fille d’une des "Dones de l'Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya" de l’autre (mouvement féministe ayant obtenu le droit de vote des femmes en Espagne en 1931), Sandra Liénard, alias Sancko, a baigné dés son plus jeune âge dans diverses luttes populaires et sociales. Le passage de sa ville natale, Orange à l’extrême droite en 1995 constitue par ailleurs une date clé dans sa conscientisation citoyenne.

    Cette conscience se traduit très tôt par un engagement dans le milieu associatif, sur diverses thématiques telles que les discriminations, la précarité, le vivre ensemble, la cause LGBTQI+ notamment avec l'association le Refuge, ainsi que plus récemment les migrants avec Sos Méditerranée ou la libération de la parole féminine avec les Women’s March, #Metoo et #Noustoutes.

    Comme un prolongement de ces combats, ses peintures abordent des causes actuelles, politiques et sociétales et apportent une réflexion sur l’identité et la différence. L’univers de Sancko oscille entre noir, blanc et une palette de nuances de gris. À une époque de radicalisation des esprits et de pensée binaire où il faudrait prendre position c’est précisément la nuance qui permet à l’intelligence de s’exprimer et au dialogue entre les êtres de jaillir. Une touche de couleur incisive, identitaire, souvent le rouge, mais pas obligatoirement, vient souligner un aspect de chaque oeuvre, offrant ainsi une interprétation supplémentaire. Un univers intense et sans tabous, où sexe, passion, sensualité, douceur, douleur, blessure et combat, se mêlent et se démêlent.

    En collaboration ou en collectif, Sancko aime particulièrement confronter son regard avec celui d’autres artistes car elle pense qu’il n’y a rien de tel que l’échange pour le mieux vivre ensemble. Son travail se décline aujourd’hui en intérieur comme en extérieur, à travers la peinture sur toile ou murale, et par des collages urbains dans la lignée du militantisme citoyen et politique.

Sancko

Born in: 1974 France
Biography
Translation in progress

Sancko is a self-taught painter, street artist and an engaged performer, born in Orange, in France in 1974.

Sancko is the grandchild of communism militants and the great granddaughter of a feminist, one leader of the feminist movement called "Dones of Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya", which had obtained the right to vote for women in Spain in 1931. Sandra Liénard, aka Sancko, has been steeped into many popular and social struggles since her very young age. The victory in 1995 of the extreme right party in her hometown had also been a key event in her citizen consciousness.

This citizen consciousness had been characterised by an early commitment in the community associations, working on various topics such as discrimination, precariousness, living together, GLBT. She had been part of many associations such as the association Refuge, as well as SOS Mediterranean (concerning migrants). She'd also been participating in the release of women's speech with Women's March, #Metoo and #Noustoutes.

As an extension of her commitments, her paintings are about current political and societal causes, and bear thinking on identity and difference. Sancko's universe oscillates between black, white colours and a palette of shades of grey. In a time of spirit radicalization and binary thought whether it would be necessary to take a stand, these nuances allow the intelligence to get expressed and the dialogue between human beings to spring up. A touch of incisive colour, identical, often red, but not necessarily, comes to underline the aspect of each work, thus offering an additional interpretation. An intense universe without taboos, where ideas such as sex, passion, sensuality, sweetness, pain, hurt and fight, mingle and untangle.

Sancko likes to compare her vision with other artists in collaborative and / or collective ways because she thinks there is nothing like exchange for better living together. Her work is now available indoors and outdoors, through painting on canvas or mural, and urban collages in the tradition of citizen and political activism.
