Sébastien Arrighi works on photographic projects that take place in both familiar and foreign environments. The itinerancy, associated with the photography, allows him to see the world beyond the intellect and to question where things come from. He cultivates a documentary production that oscillates between reality and fiction, turning trivial subjects into enigmatic stories.

Sébastien Arrighi was born in 1992 in Ajaccio (South Corsica). A graduate of the École supérieure d'art d'Aix-en-Provence with honors, he is the president and founder of the photography festival Mascarone lab in Bastelicaccia. In 2020, his work on the Mediterranean sea Shivers, receives assistance from the CNAP for the realization of his first monograph, published in 2022 by Poursuite. In 2021, his monographic exhibition Era Ora is presented with the support of the Collectivité de Corse at the Compagnie Marseille during the 13th festival of Printemps de l'Art Contemporain. It is composed, among other things, of his research on his native island. In 2023, this topographical and emotional survey which questions insularity, will develop in New Caledonia, with the support of the DRAC PACA. Currently, the artist is working on a new series taking place in Riyadh, in partnership with the Ministry of Culture of Saudi Arabia, the Frac Corsica and the Bienalsur. He will also leave at the end of 2023, to question the imaginary of the cowboy in the practice of rodeo, via a residency of creation and experimentation in the USA.
