Soho House Art Prize: Sarah Hardie
Soho House Art Prize winner Sarah Hardie unveils her new video essay, “Spring sometimes rises in me too,” exploring issues surrounding love, care, (re)production, solitude, and inequality.
The inaugural Soho House Art Prize with Bombay Sapphire was launched in Summer 2020. We hoped it might provide a source of inspiration and support to the artworld at a difficult moment. Over 1000 global artists responded to the invitation to create a new, dramatic idea for an artwork. Head of Collections for Soho House, Kate Bryan and her fellow judges, Maria Balshaw, director of the Tate and the artist Hebru Brantley awarded the prize to Sarah Hardie. Scottish-Italian and based in London, Sarah has worked tirelessly to make her exceptional idea a reality despite working during an uncertain climate. The result is her symphonic video essay, “Spring sometimes rises in me too,” that explores issues surrounding love, care, (re)production, solitude, and inequality. Like other impressive artworks, it is at once deeply personal whilst creating space for the viewer’s own experience and imagination.
