Sara Davies

Artist, mother, feminist.
“I do this so I am not forgotten; to prove to myself that I exist.”

Sara’s practice is informed by her background in fine art, live art and traditional theatre; as well as my feminism. Research led, she uses a multi-disciplinary approach to create performance that dances on the knife-edge that exists between artist and audience. Through a series of durational images, disconnected from each other and yet intrinsically linked, she is compelled to make brutally honest performance in which the audience becomes custodians of the physical, emotional and social risks she takes. Concerned with the fragmentation and eventual transformation of self; specifically (although not exclusively) through her own experiences of postnatal depression and motherhood, Sara deals with notions of ambivalence, loss, guilt, anger, freedom, forgiveness and acceptance.

“I am pushing at my boundaries. I want you to push your boundaries with me. How close can we get – physically; emotionally? Can we connect?”
