SARAH TRAD

Sarah is a video artist whose work explores the relationship between subjective and objective emotionality, navigating daily life and relationships while faced with mental illness, and breaking down stereotypes of gender and narrative. The living embodiment of the correlation between chronic depression and binge watching practices, her work consists of appropriating and manipulating found footage from movies, music videos and television. She also likes to use text, performance and elements of karaoke (which she is obsessed with but has never actually performed IRL) to create recognizable narrative structures that can be viewed in and outside the academy of art.

 

Sarah studied at the Film and Television School of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague and received her BFA from Syracuse University.
