Sara Ferrer practice is based in addressing the challenges related to the future of the oceans arising from personal and social interactions with water.
By exploring its possible origins and derivations, she uses diverse processes, objects and materials to interpret through an aesthetic simplicity, political actions and the complexity of the emotions that embody the consequences of fear, vulnerability, social and personal values. Her works, that arise predominantly from an oceanic imaginary, as well as the investigation of the crossovers between aquatic and human species, seek to challenge the viewer to question the ambiguity hidden in everyday actions.
An ethical concern arises from the protection of this cartographic space, the ocean, as an abstract form that has been retendered to sovereign and mercantile exploitation. Sara Ferrer understand the ocean as the mirror where our emotions are reflected. Where each action has direct repercussions for or against us.
