B&B Site Visit from Sarah Britten-Jones
Sarah Britten-Jones is a British visual artist with a background in ceramics. Some of her work involves the process of appropriation, and she likes to respond to things that already exist in the world, often manipulating visual material to show the opposite of its original or intended meaning. She likes playing with authority, and is always on the look out for people and institutions to play with.
I source conceptual and physical material from my environment or situation, and manipulate it to reveal truths that are often denied or hidden. I am interested in the stories we tell ourselves in order to live, and how these self-narratives are exercised and take form through the things we create and consume. My work often provides an antithesis to the dominant storyline.
