Sarah Browne’s research-based practice investigates the materiality of how we communicate and create shared meaning through exchange and transaction. She uses the peculiar status of the art object, and its uncertain purpose, as a hinge to lever discussions about economy, value and politics. She collaborates with Gareth Kennedy under the name Kennedy Browne, whose work can be seen here.

Recent exhibitions include The Peacock, Grazer Kunstverein, Austria; One Foot in the Real World, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; The Twentieth Century as Never Seen Before, Museo di Santa Giulia, Brescia (2013); How to Use Fool's Gold, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2012); Second Burial at Le Blanc, Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2011); Minimalism and Applied II, Daimler Contemporary, Berlin, and Unto This Last, Raven Row, London (both 2010). In 2009 she co-represented Ireland at the 53rd Venice Biennale with Gareth Kennedy and Kennedy Browne. She is currently resident at Firestation Artist Studios, and lectures at IADT Dun Laoghaire and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.
