ART IN THE BAR: Sarah Taylor Silverwood

ART IN THE BAR: Sarah Taylor Silverwood

Art in the Bar: 2021 exhibition


Sarah Taylor Silverwood combines hand-drawn animation and sculpture to challenge the way that historical story structures can shape contemporary social narratives and relations of power.

In her exhibition, Taylor Silverwood revisits the classical Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo. The animated film navigates Apollo’s pursuit of Daphne, and her eventual escape through physical transformation. Here, the extended chase scene is retold and abstracted through the animation and pastel-hued installations that they sit within, raising questions about voice, power and the body.

About the artist

Working in a range of media across animation, ceramics and print, Sarah Taylor Silverwood is interested in drawing and language and their shared histories. She is a member of Modern Clay Co-op and Feminists Work for Change.

Recent solo projects include Link and Shift Artists Walk Commission, Eastside Projects (2020), Crowd Show at NN Contemporary (2018), the Multistory 2018 commission and residencies at The British Consulate in Chicago and The University of Birmingham. In 2018 she was awarded the Feeney Fellowship for work in animation.

Daphne was commissioned by The New Art Gallery Walsall in 2019 and toured to Aspex, Portsmouth Jan-April 2020.
