Sarah Fitzgerald’s interdisciplinary art practice responds to the ways in which we occupy a particular place, and to the conditions of a specific site. Her MFA at the National art school looked at contemporary site-specific art and the connections to architecture. Since completing her studies she has recently travelled to Scandinavia, France and Japan to observe the legacy of modern architecture in the contemporary world. Sarah is interested in the ways in which we inhabit and construct a particular site, as a means to identify broader issues of place and identity in contemporary society. She looks at urban planning, architecture and structural elements in building, as well as the language used to describe building, as metaphors for social structures. She also looks at the organization of physical space as hegemonic social constructions and uses her work as a means to critique and reflect on contemporary issues of place. Through her art practice Sarah continually attempts to see and to describe the way we construct and live in the contemporary world.
