Work for Live Art Danmark
2012 “Good Food” for Samtalekøkken
When we invited Sara to perform at Samtalekøkken, she presented a buffet. Although the good food had been carefully prepared to look like it was half-eaten, all of it was quickly consumed by a hungry audience. Afterwards, Sara revealed the intention of the work in a performance lecture, which investigated the social phenomena of the buffet and the fine line between attraction and disgust.
About the Artist
Sara Hamming is a performance artist and performance writer living in Copenhagen. She receives continuous funding from the National Arts Foundation for projects and is a member of Independent Performing Artists and Dansehallerne in Copenhagen.
Sara works in a cross-aesthetic field with text, music, objects, choreography and space. Her themes are fantasy/power, history, creative anachronism, feminism and therapy. She works with series that reflect perceptions of time and history: in series and incomplete or rather recurring processes that shift and rethink the themes, tools and structures of the previous manifestations.
Sara works full time as a performance artist, occasionally doing performative reading workshops at universities and other kinds of teaching. She also occasionally works as a dramaturg.
Moribund.dk is Sara’s working framework.
