Sarah Pierce presents a group performance, Campus (2011), involving six performers that act out the familiar gestures of political protests along with phrases, such as "Exaggerate! Strengthen! Simplify!", adapted from the one-on-one instruction given to art students during a three dimensional sculpture class. As the instructor moves from student to student ideas about technique and observation merge with other acts that involve ‘seeing' and ‘doing'.

Sarah Pierce, Campus with Bianca den Breejen, Katinka van Gorkum, Maaike Lauwaert, Najmeh Saghaei, Kosta Tonev, Sindy Tejeda, Zoe Reddy.

Sarah Pierce
(* 1968, USA) is an artist who lives and works in Dublin. She has used an umbrella term - The Metropolitan Complex - to describe her art practice. Despite its institutional resonance, this title does not signify an organisation. Instead, it covers various discursive working methods, involving papers, interviews, archives, talks and exhibitions. Recent exhibitions include: Anti-establishement, Hessel Museum  Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson; The Artist Talks, The Showroom, London; and, After the Future, Eva International. In 2011, she showed work in A Terrible Beauty is Born, 11th Biennale de Lyon; Push and Pull, Tate Modern, London and Mumok, Vienna; Research Program, Charlottenborg Kunsthal, Copenhagen; Appeal for Alternatives, Stiftung Kunstsammlung Nordhein-Westfalen K21+K20, Düsseldorf; and We are Grammar, Pratt, Manhattan. She is currently working with Bookworks on a new publication called, Sketches of Universal History, edited by Rike Frank. Pierce will be exhibiting at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, The Question Would be the Answer to the Question, Are you happy? in October 2012.
