Sarah King

Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader BA (Hons) Fine Art

Sarah King is a practicing artist, educator and researcher. She employs a range of artistic research methods and material processes in her practice including digital recording and projection; object gathering and making; stitching; drawing; and embodied actions.

Her work and research are focussed around notions of memory; exploring the uncanny, and the abject in relation to objects, materiality, memory, and trace. Recent soft sculptural works and sound drawings are deeply concerned with the passing of time, forgetfulness, the absent subject and mending the impossible in an attempt to confront and reconcile the strangeness of loss. She exhibits nationally and internationally and has work held in private collections in the UK and US.

Sarah is Subject Leader for the Fine Art degree programme at Plymouth College of Art, she teaches across all years and leads level 6 studio, professional practice and contextual modules.

Sarah is passionate about the dialogue of practice and the richness of sharing, debating and questioning to bring dynamic and live making and thinking to the studio. She is currently External Examiner for University of Gloucestershire.
