Sara Morawetz

Born in Newcastle, NSW. Lives and works in Brooklyn, USA.

Sara Morawetz is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores the processes that underpin scientific action. Interested in the scientific method and its philosophical implications, her work is devised to test and expose the internal processes of methodological labour, examining how concepts of observation, experimentation and standardisation operate as both scientific and cultural apparatus.

Her recent projects have involved collaborations with scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA).

Morawetz is a PhD candidate at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney and an Australian Postgraduate Award recipient. Her work has been exhibited throughout Australia and internationally, including exhibitions at the Museé des Arts et Métiers (France), Australian Consulate-General New York, RAPID PULSE International Performing Arts Festival (Chicago, USA), Open Source Gallery (NYC, USA) and Dominik Mersch Gallery (NSW).

Morawetz was the 2016 winner of ‘the Churchie’ National Emerging Art Prize and has been awarded the Moya Dyring Studio Scholarship (AGNSW), the Vida Lahey Memorial Travelling Scholarship (QAGOMA Foundation) and project funding from the Australia Council for the Arts.
