Sarah Staton creates spaces and objects that seek to enable revelry and reverie. Her work combines a sculptor’s sensibility with design, landscape and architecture. Staton’s practice draws inspiration from graphic and furniture designers, architects and cultural critics with whom she collaborates. Staton’s recent work has explored interaction between audience and environment where her artworks have become habitable or capable of supporting life. Staton is interested in the tactile qualities of our built environment, an idea she returns to repeatedly in her work.
In the lecture she will talk about her work including a new public realm commission produced by Field Art Projects for the University of Bristol, a 21st century folly and social sculpture for the University’s halls of residence at Stoke Bishop. She exhibits internationally and her work is held in public collections all over the world.
Organised by Arnolfini, Bristol City Council, University of the West of England in association with Field Art Projects and the University of Bristol
