Sara Plinius

Working with Beat, Sara Plinius has focused on trauma as psychological damage and the consequences it has on our mental and physical abilities. More than viewing the trauma entirely as a human, emotional state, Plinius has considered whether objects can become traumatised as a reaction to violent experiences and assaults. Beat consists of five sculptures of painted acrylic, which represent running legs on the scale of 1:1. With the relations between the sculptures’ and their material conditions, Plinius investigates how we might approach barrier-breakings and affinities towards objects, and she asks how we may understand the effects that human actions have on our surroundings.
