Sarah Cathers is a collector of oddities with an urge to document and preserve the forgotten. Driven by the process of fragmentation, she gathers pieces of discarded objects with the incentive to mend and rebuild the broken and repurpose the forgotten. She creates her own tangible compositions placing odd pieces of different materials that fit together, juxtaposing the unlikely.
Fascinated by adhesives and their ability to secure and fasten two objects together, she aims to preserve an object’s history and importance, using these materials to preserve and trap their history and original importance. By focusing on the binding capabilities of thread, she uses fibres to conceal and repair, wrapping and securing pieces together, acknowledging their past while recognising their potential to be something other than their intended purpose.
