— Sarah Derat

 

 

 

 

Sarah Derat (b. 1984) is a french artist living in London. She earned her BA in Fine Arts from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and her MA in Fine Arts also from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2011.

Across different materials such as steel, latex, fabric, Sarah Derat’s sculptural practice explores the aporetic nature of relationships, and our desire to see them last. Recurrent themes in her works are parallel lives, digital afterlife and repetition as a possible rebirth cycle. Sarah collaborated with Rachel McRae on the piece Digital & Dead, an AR work exploring the digital legacy, the digital footprint we naively leave behind through daily use of social media.
