Born in: 1979

United Kingdom

Biography

Biographical and with feminist undertones, Sarah Hardacre’s collages insert glamorous individuals into otherwise authoritarian settings. Sourcing images from local archives and secondhand “gentlemen’s magazines,” Hardacre explores the politics of utopian housing.

Sarah Hardacre's work reflects notions of public and private space, as she juxtaposes the masculine, concrete housing developments of her hometown, Salford, England, with feminine beauty. Her collages highlight the contradictions of government housing complexes—their simultaneous power to dictate the structure of the home and deny communities a role in shaping their collective future yet inability to control residents’ private affairs.

Her work is in the collections of the British Museum and Irish Museum amongst others.
