Sarah King

Lecturer & Subject Leader BA (Hons) Fine Art

Sarah King is a visual artist and lecturer. 

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.

Sarah's work and research explores memory; remembering and forgetting through documenting and collecting traces of repeated acts of daily life. Work is often ephemeral, momentary and fleeting.

Archivist of the everyday, Sarah records thoughts through the marking off of time, using marks for re-mapping, scoring repeated sound, and searching for a presence of silence. She works in soft sculpture, sound installation, photography and expanded fields of drawing.

Recent projects and exhibitions include: 2019 Tiny Sketchbook Project, London, Paris, New York, 2019 Hidden- Fringe Arts Bath Festival, 2018 Royal West Academy, Bristol, 2018 Institut Fur Alles Mogliche, Berlin, 2017 May Day, May Day, Test Space, Spike Island, Bristol, 2012 Specular, KARST, Plymouth, 2012 TRACE, Motorcade/Flashparade, Bristol, 2011 ‘Satori’ Performance drawing, Goldener Saalkun Shaus Tacheles, Berlin
