I’m Sarah Kerbosch, a multidisciplinary Designer/artisT
My name is Sarah Kerbosch. I am a multidisciplinary designer/artist from The Netherlands, with a background in fashion design and research. I combine different techniques and materials, which results in my multidisciplinary practice in which I use fashion- and costume design, set design, illustration, writing and performance.
I have an ongoing interest in the effect of space on the physical and mental well-being, from a tiny cave to the way an entire city is constructed. My favourite tool to work with is the body, and I draw a lot of inspiration from working with the influence of the body on shape, and vice versa. I work in an experimental way, and I have a stubbornness that results in me questioning and trying everything for myself before believing it. I want to discover all the characteristics of the materials that I work with, from which flow new discoveries which often become part of the final result.
My favourite colour combination is purple and orange, therefore I try not to make everything purple and orange.
I have a background in fashion design and research. I studied Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Amsterdam University College, Amsterdam, before going to ArtEZ Academy of the Arts, Arnhem. My never-ending curiosity, research-based working method and ability to transform the world around me into the visual and verbal, enables me to delve deeply into a wide variety of subjects and create multi-layered work. I work both individually as well as collaboratively.
I work both individually and collaboratively.
