The ARTIST

 

Sarah Button is an independent artist born in Gothenburg, Sweden. Growing up crossing continents (such as North America, Africa & Europe) she hasn’t been able to fully root in any specific place. Unsure how to answer where she is from she feels a somewhat sense of home in Malmö, Sweden.

In 2018, she moved to Indonesia and became the first Artist in Resident in the Innovation Hub at the well-known Green School Bali.

Prior to that she had a tour showcasing her work at the world famous Chelsea Flower Show in London (2017) .

With varying upbringing and studies, she is constantly searching for forms of expression and purpose in the discarded. She has strong ambitions to take creative responsibility towards a positive change.

“My work has always been focused on recreating abandoned materials to draw attention to socio-cultural and environmental complexities. Colorful, sharp forms and unexpected elements are characteristic of my works.”

She is a Founding member of Art Collective SYSTERIA

Besides creating with her hands, she enjoys experimental photography.
