Artist Sara Dittrich

Sara Dittrich



American b. 1991   —   Sara Dittrich is an interdisciplinary sculpture artist who builds introspective experiences that shift perspective from passive seeing to active looking, from passive hearing to active listening. Dittrich uses musical thinking to illuminate the dynamic and unconscious rhythms of the body and environments with diverse mediums that often include sculptural objects, musical performance, video, and interactive electronic technologies. Her art is heard and felt in real time, a feature that Nat Trotman, Curator of Performance and Media at the Guggenheim, called “the liveness” of Dittrich’s work. From placing a cellist in a 9ft. tall chair, sculpting hundreds of tiny ears from clay, or performing with bio sensors that match breath to tidal movement, the work can be described as both absurd and meditative. Dittrich’s studio practice is located in Baltimore, Maryland where she has lived and worked since receiving her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Dittrich’s work has been exhibited and performed in numerous venues including the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD; Washington Project for the Arts, DC; and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, MI. She studied under Dominik Lang at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague in 2013. She has also been awarded artist residencies including Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (2015); the Vermont Studio Center Fellowship (2015); and Sculpture Space (2015). In 2018-2019, she was a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. She is the recipient of a 2017 Mary Sawyers Baker Artist Award, and was a 2017 Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize Finalist.
