About Sarah Devereux:
Sarah Devereux cartwheels over, dances on, and kicks dust at the line separating Art & Life, and this sometimes induces fear and anxiety! Working in a wide range of disciplines including, drawing, sculpture, paint, performance and video, her work could be described as extreme honesty dressed up in glitter. Her sculptures and drawings are crude but intelligent, disturbing but endearing, ‘fabulous’ but anxious, and immediate but considered. Her performance work moves between traditional performance art, video art, interventions and cabaret. Her work is explicitly political, and often tackles themes of female body autonomy, lack of opportunities caused by the recession, boredom and fear, whilst remaining playful, absurd, and accessible.
