"Ultimately what I hope to create is a moment where the inside and outside collapse, allowing closer consideration of self and other."

The works of Sarah Best exist at once in physical reality, and suspended in a place of memory and imagination within the mind and body.  Best experiments with ideas of corporeal space and the figuration of emotion through gestures of the body, revealing emotional truths that lie beneath our day-to-day interactions. Her works contain inner self-reflections that render visible a paradox: the infinite and continually changing proportions of consciousness, and the finite physical laws of the body.  The result is a stark confrontation with the vulnerability and solitude of the human experience.
