Sara Trillo

For my residency, I plan to make walks or expeditions in the Sacy area, and mark these through a series of sculptures. My pieces will be made with materials that have a relevance to the Picardy landscape, and their form will be informed by historical narratives and nearby archaeological finds. I hope during my residency to lead public walks retracing my steps, and share narratives I have researched or invented in response to the sites that have inspired me.
