Title: La peau du monde | The skin of the world
Format: 152 x 215 cm – 55,1″ x 90,9 “
Weight: 2,040 g – 4 lb 19 oz
Date: 2017 – 2019
Technique : 6,825 3-cm squares of fabric, assembled in three dimensions then quilted together onto a canvas base with a silk core.
Description : For The skin of the world, the avenues explored in the Moments and Running water series break free, with diagonal lines softening up. The three-dimensional effect becomes a method. Combined with the chromatic choices, it confers true sensuality to the work as a whole.
A new texture is achieved, somewhere between fur, feather and scales.
Encapsulating previous explorations in a nutshell, the relief composition has a mesmerising effect on the onlooker.

assembly was embarked upon in 2018, with finishing touches in 2019.
is Sabine Cibert’s most monumental work, covering a surface of over
shades of blue tumble down
a steepening slope in scenery spreading
over the entire surface,
where shade and light meet.

along broken lines that follow the slanting curves.
Title: Eau vive 3 | Running water 3
Série des Eau-vive | Running water series
Format: 152 x 215 cm – 59” x 93”
Weight: 1,615 g – 3 lb 20 oz
Date: 2016 – 2017
Technique : 6,825 textile squares 3cm wide, hand-assembled and quilted on a canvas base with a silk core
Description: Photos taken of the back of Running Water 1 inspired another fabric effect in another, wider format. The oblique line in the original motif has been softened.
This achieves a honeycomb surface, revealing a new fabric with a relief pattern. The textile fragments seem to each melt into the next, producing a blurry optical sensation, almost Impressionist in its feel.
Between Running Water 1 and Running Water 3, the textile squares have gained in mobility, looking swifter, following a sharper slope in a landscape depicting the confluence of light and shade.
This new relief assemblage achieves a floaty, sensual effect, as if fabric were layered with ether.
