Sarah Pager recently exhibited a series of new sculptural works at the Florence Trust Summer Exhibition in London, a culmination of a year long residency at the Florence Trust. For this exhibition, Pager presented a new series of sculptural works including a large scale site-responsive installation which featured within the central exhibition. Pager’s practice is intensely informed through an understanding of trends in modern society, scientific investigation and philosophical ideologies. As a result her works are often an examination of the world around us forming questions about perceived notions and encouraging existential thought from the viewer. Pager’s works are created using objects from everyday life however, through the addition of biological, visceral and surgical attributes, result in sculptural formations that are interactive and beg for further questioning about the true nature of reality. Pager graduated from the Goldsmiths MAFA program in 2014, and received a postgraduate diploma with distinction from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2010. Pager has exhibited throughout the UK and has been shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards including the Red Mansion Art Prize in 2011, the Clifford Chance Sculpture Prize and the Zabludowitz Collection’s Future Map in 2010.

Artsy In collaboration with UBS present – The Art Market in 4 Parts video series. Galleries A great series that highlights current trends in the Art Market. A shift being seen is the need to embrace the digital age and actively respond to the growing demands within this market space. This means building an online presence and adopting an effective digital strategy. As more Art Market transactions move online not only are “galleries are recognizing the need to have an online presence“ but what we are seeing is that “…the value of art people will buy on the internet is going up“. The Art Market is niche and appreciates tradition in how Art businesses should operate. It is one of the most fascinating aspects to this market. Understanding how to integrate both ideas is necessary now. Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art – Andy Warhol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1UC4R6-EiQ
