Sarah Goffman: Applied Arts is an immersive deep dive into the interdisciplinary art practice of Sarah Goffman. Intricate and playful, Goffman transforms recycled material, mostly plastic, into artworks that reference larger histories such as the orientalist fascinations of Western collectors.

Taking inspiration from the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s collections, Goffman has applied her detailed eye and wit, to turn utilitarian vessels into objet d’art, and paintings into three-dimensional sculpture. By transforming and elevating waste, Goffman’s work prods us to think about consumerism in new and interesting ways. 

Sarah Goffman (born 1966) has been exhibiting mixed media installations since 1994. Goffman completed a Diploma of Arts in Photography (1994) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (2000) at the National Art School. In 2018, she was awarded a Doctor of Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong.
