Sarah Gomes Harris


Sarah Gomes Harris or SGH is a British Portuguese BAFTA winning TV series creator, animator, artist, campaigner, unsubscribed pataphysicist. She is based in Hastings. Her works often feature uniquely combinatory characters as well as observations of micro or trivial details, the slowing down of and the creation of space for something like wonder. She is interested in quiet recognition, connection, tension, touch, play, often by absurd provocation.

Tactility features heavily, she is always thinking of a uniquely touchable way to present the work, be it bulbous trees, pattern making, or putting the viewer inside art they can touch or move or become part of.

Her work spans animation, writing, painting, ceramics, comics, embroidery, music, performance and interactive installation. In recent years - and in response to an ever more turbulent world - these works have become increasingly political, and as a consequence, hyper-localised and community based. She seeks to put community in control in some way, the work offering roles in its full creation. In this way it is a type of community organising and strengthening. Her work still retains a micro focus, absurdity, tactility, and somewhat insistent charm.
