The artist Sarah Mayer is welcomed at PXL-MAD School of Arts in Hasselt to talk about her practice.
Born in Germany in 1990, Sarah completed her Bachelor's in Fashion and Design in 2015 in Amsterdam. During her studies, she interned for the renowned Belgian Fashion Designer Walter Van Beirendonck (Member of the Antwerp Six) in 2013 and won the Lectra Award for her Hyper Craft collection (digital fashion minor) in 2014. Her work is further influenced by her experience on film sets, as a costume designer (Holiday on Ice) and studio manager for a Couture House in the years after her studies.

For the past three years (2019-2022), Sarah has shifted her focus entirely towards the Digital World. Her digital masks, partly available as Augmented reality experiences (on Instagram, Snapchat and Tiktok), keep fashion at its core while not aiming to be fashionable. Instead, the designs question what fashion can become with a different medium. Sarah has exhibited her work at the exhibition inside the Plus One Gallery (Antwerp, Belgium) in 2022, the Screenwear exhibition at the Design Museum Den Bosch (Netherlands) in 2022 as well as the Asian Front Art Show Osaka, Japan) 2022-2023.

Lecture Hour:
Thursday 16th of February, 7 pm.

The lecture takes place at the AudiTorium, PXL-MAD, Campus Elfde Linie, building G, Hasselt.
