“In her photographic series, Sabine Schwaighofer questions complex relationships between body, gender and identity.” ‘Identity is an ever-unfinished conversation,’ Stuart Hall once said. In Schwaighofer's works, the subject of identification engages in the language of photography in a likeweise interminable conversation with norms, ideals, and fantasies of body, gender, and sexuality.” (Christian Kravagna)
The meaning and discussion of identity, the play with identity as well as the relationship of the artist to herself, to others and to things that surround her are at the centre of her work.
Schwaighofer describes her work as an "extended self-portrait as well as a documentary staging." Reflection on social and cultural identities is an important part of Schwaighofer's artistic activity: "Everything I photograph is part of my self-portrait."
