Art Talk: Series 2 - Sarah Baker
Impirioso and Rococo Rosso Casa
‘Art Talk’ is a weekly talk series that features invited artists, curators, critics and other thinkers of national and international standing, exploring how contemporary art interacts with the social, political and philosophical dimensions of the contemporary world and where it intersects with other disciplines and discourses.
In this talk, Sarah Baker will explore her current project Impirioso and Rococo Rosso Casa. The hour-long TV episode commissioned by UH Galleries and directed by Sarah Baker explores luxury, greed, scandal, and the constructs of dramatic television.
Impirioso represents a significant development and finessing of the artist’s film work. Sumptuously shot at locations including Hatfield House and the Luton Hoo Hotel, Impirioso brings cinematic production values to Baker’s fascination with the dramatised tele-visual constructs of avarice, idolatry and murder.
Sarah Baker grew up in Buffalo, New York. She received her BFA degree at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2000 and her MA degree at Goldsmiths College, London, in 2002. She is now based in the UK and has been exhibiting her work extensively in the UK and abroad.
