Sarah Pletcher

Sarah Pletcher (BFA 2016 from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago) works mainly in performance and fibers to discuss what it means to inhabit a queer, female body from the very physical experience to a very conceptual understanding of the unspoken implications. She tries to understand what is predetermined and what is symptomatic. Her performances vary from existing only in the experience of the live viewer to being specifically performed for the camera (video and photography.) Currently she is making work surrounding pregnancy and child rearing for queer peoples and bodies. She is pursuing an M.F.A. degree in Performance and Performance Studies at Pratt Institute.
