Sarah H. Paulson lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Her practice remains focused on The Performative. Paulson believes that it is through the living practice of performance that one can get the closest to what it means to be human.
The boundaries and overlaps between past and present, time and timelessness, and public vs. private surface through her drawings and performances.
By archiving personal experience through her often durational or endurance-based work, Paulson reaches the place where the universal is touched in the audience as well as in herself and/or the performers.
The artist and the performers are pushed to their limits. Humanness, with its breath and blood, beauty, hopelessness, and potential, is aspired to and celebrated.
Paulson has also worked as part of the performance art duo, Holly Faurot & Sarah H. Paulson. For 10 years, Faurot & Paulson have created large-scale, endurance-oriented performance artworks that exist between the realms of performance art and dance. Their work has been performed internationally in galleries/venues including NYCAMS (NY Center for Art & Media Studies), NY; English Kills Art Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, NY; NurtureArt, Brooklyn, NY; The Chocolate Factory Theater, Brooklyn, NY; P.I.T. (Projects In Transit), Brooklyn, NY; the Harold Clurman Center for New Works in Movement and Dance Theatre at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, NY; Villa Feuerlösche, Prenning, Austria; Open Art Gallery, Beijing, China, among others.
