Sarah Mosca’s practice negotiates the role of photography and its historical nuance; drawing from theoretical texts regarding photography’s relationship to truth to her current enquiry, re-contextualising the ‘gaze’ within contemporary feminist philosophy. Threading together themes of sorrow and fiction she asks philosophical questions about authenticity, formlessness and aesthetics. These explorations of meaning and narrative flirt with ideas of representation examining the materiality of photographs and its attendant possibilities as sculptural artefacts. Sarah Mosca is represented by Sarah Cottier Gallery.
