Sarah Zapata

Sarah Zapata’s fabric works employ traditional weaving, coiling and latch-hook techniques to achieve contemporary abstracted objects. Inspired by her Peruvian heritage and feminist theory, the artist’s body of work examines issues of labor and systems of power and control, as well as Queerness, cultural relativism and the intersectionality of identity. Zapata’s work exists between the past and the present, between craft and fine art, between South and North America.
