artist, performer, and author

Sarah Vanhee is an artist, performer, and author who works within the realms of public space and the institutional art field. Interested in the aspects of society that are kept hidden from the public, or the voices that are made unheard, her works illustrate the importance of these voices and how they can speak to the cores of societies. Vanhee’s work challenges mainstream media’s predetermined views on marginalized peoples, such as prisoners, and exposes how these depictions do not correspond with the realities of these people. Vanhee has worked in a wide range of places, from theaters to corporate meetings, and uses different formats within her works. In 2007, Vanhee was nominated for the Ton Lutz Prize and received honorable mention. Her work has been presented at: Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels, 2018, 2016, 2014, 2013; Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, 2011; Centre Pompidou-Metz, Metz, 2010; and iDans, Istanbul, 2010.
