About this Speaker

Sarah is passionate about the dialogue of practice and the richness of sharing, debating and questioning to bring dynamic, live making and critical dialogue to the studio. Sarah works across diverse media and disciplines; soft sculpture, sound, installation, photography and expanded fields of drawing. Current works are fuelled by remembering, forgetting and the (w)hole left, exploring memory as a monument; a grammar of sentiment. Medical paraphernalia; bandages, steri strips and acupuncture needles, are used to explore deep concerns of time, forgetfulness, presence and absence. Abject material explorations of hair attempt to mend the impossible, memorialise a moment, creating a keepsake of the strangely and secretly familiar. Research interests: memory, site and the artefact; abject materiality; the uncanny.
