Sandra’s work is concerned with the establishment of the self within today’s society. In her work she utilizes narration to critically engage with individuals.
Her work explores parameters defining who we are. Therefore socially and geographically established borders and boundaries that contribute to standards and our expectations of the ‘normal’ inform her research. Her work involves research within the fields of film, literature and the ordinary social interaction. The outcomes are presented in various media from objects that are involved in the storytelling till the creation of a filmed spectacle.
THE INDIVIDUAL’S PURSUIT
The Individual’s Pursuit is the creation of a narrative based on a character whose quest is to inhabit an in-between space as an exploration of what is beyond the obvious. To walk along the edge of water and earth, where both elements meet, is becoming a strong desire. Specially designed apparatus and physical training exercises will be employed in an attempt to fulfil the dream.
The story of the Individual’s pursuit challenges common sense and discusses the idea of the in-between space and borders.
This rather odd quest looks at the relationship between the individual belief and society as well as the longing for a creation of a personal space where one is almost attempting to disconnect oneself from reality and therefore add another layer to normality/ reality.
