Sarah Barthe


Sarah Barthe is a French artist born in 1985, who lives and works in Paris.

Drawing her inspiration from the world of childhood, her drawings and collages highlight the ambiguous, obscure, sometimes malevolent relationships that can be created during this period, and the consequences this can have in the construction of identity. Borrowing from psychoanalysis and fairy tales, her children’s stories become stories for adults, and behind the seemingly innocent images are hidden buried and unspeakable desires. Everyone then takes the risk of projecting themselves into a troubling, sometimes unbearable face-to-face encounter with their own story, fears or fantasies.
