Countdown

The countdown is a charity practice with no limits other than a fixed length: Equoevento fights starvation in the present. The problem of famine and food waste are real and actual and concern us directly. We can all do something and it is necessary to start now.
The countdown restarts every three months.

The printings can be bought: one part of the price is needed to cover production costs, the second part is to the artist’s work and the remaining is donated to Equoevento Onlus www.equoevento.org

Fame

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. Every advertisement becomes a black and white poster in a 100×700 cm format (edition limited to ten pieces at 120€ each), a Marios t-shirt (edition limited to ten pieces at 80€ each) and a Limoges porcelain plate (edition limited to ten pieces at 80€ each).

The printings can be bought: one part of the price is needed to cover production costs, the second part is to the artist’s work and the remaining is donated at Equoevento Onlus.

“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.
