Sarah Wagner, who divides her time between Detroit, MI and Chattanooga TN is a sculptor and installation artist whose work renders the frailties and strengths wrought by the dynamism of biological development within an increasingly unnatural world. Her investigations and renderings of the ‘endocrine disruption theory’, radiation and her love of natural and human created systems has inspired her to explore exhibition venues as unnatural environments within which to create models for parallel worlds.
Sarah Wagner is the recipient of the prestigious Joan Mitchell Award in Painting & Sculpture in 2014 and the Pollack Krasner Award in 2009. Exhibitions include Projekt 0047 (Berlin), Homie (Berlin), Museum of Craft and Folk Art , San Francisco, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, Southern Exposure, New Langton Arts (San Francisco).
