Sarah Irvin discusses her process in this 2015 interview.
April 17, 2020

Sarah Irvin’s work is about trying to understand her relationship with family members and contemplating those people, places, and memories. She discusses her process of using a stream of consciousness autobiographical text that, for the most part, she doesn't remember once she's finished the piece.


“The important thing to me is the knowledge that there is a history of text and history of meaning. The knowledge that this ink once signified something and that that is unattainable.”


This video was shot in Sarah’s studio in 2015.
