FAME, 2015 – today

A work about homeless signs www.iamhungry.it

From 2014 Sabine Delafon buys homeless paper signs where they say to be hungry. She talks with them and photographs the purchase of their advertisements.

The paper cards are then photographed and the photos are printed in black and white in a 100×700 cm format. On every poster at the bottom a small notice says: “Fill the blank in you and be part of this art project www.iamhungry.it

The printings can be bought: one third of the price is needed to cover production costs, one third the work of the artist and the remaining third is donated to Fondazione Banco Alimentare Onlus..

Every advertisement becomes a poster (edition limited to ten pieces at 120€ each), a t-shirt (edition limited to ten pieces at 80€ each) and a porcelain plate (edition limited to ten pieces at 80€ each).

“I am hungry” is in reality a message, a human condition shared by all: regardless of whether it is hunger for food, hunger for love, hunger for beauty, culture or travels, we all are hungry for something.
