Sarah Bernhardt has created a body of work that explores the casual definition of entropy as accounting for a system of decline or disorder. By applying this to a variety of mediums, Bernhardt offers a selection of works that refuse to commit to their present state; they wilt into the gallery space by evaporating or emitting steady heat, they become disobedient and complex in their undoing.
Often starting with classical and mythological elements, all the works are weighed down into the space by their dismantling; either by the release of heat, the literal erasing of their details or the evaporation of their contents.
Sarah Bernhardt recently received her BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London (2012). Recent exhibitions include "Open Cube" curated by Adriano Pedrosa, White Cube Mason's Yard, London, (2013); "XV International Call" Luis Adelantado Valencia, (2013); "Co-Respondent" Transition Gallery, London, (2013).
