Artist Zoe Sarjant is in residence for a week to work with Amanda MillisOn 12 August 2021 by Deej_Fabyc1
Zoe graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London, with a degree in Fine Art in 2019. Their work is interdisciplinary in nature, integrating photography, textiles and drawing to apply accessible methods of healing and learning through collaborative storytelling. Their work is concerned with accessibility in art and wider society. These interests were showcased in their debut work Am I Better Now? in collaboration with Ivy St Clair which interrogated ideas of ableism and art, presented through a multi-sensory artistic experience. They created an isolated space within the Goldsmiths Fine Art degree show that acted as an escape from the exhibition itself, allowing viewers a space to decompress and reflect on how they’re feeling.
Zoe and Ivy now work together under the name Always Tomorrow, utilising their artistic practice and research to create resources discussing mental health, disability and well being and host craft based workshops facilitating learning around these topics.
For their solo practice Zoe has recently began a project called This Is What I’ve Learnt, a series of drawings in collaboration with photographs taken by their late Grandfather, that works on reclaiming time lost within illness.
