Sarah Baker, born in 1977, studied at San Francisco Art Institute and Goldsmiths College London. Baker lives and works in London and has exhibited her work internationally, including at the V&A, London; Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Belgium; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Kunstwerk, Cologne; Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Buffalo, NY; Bearspace Gallery, Deptford X, London and Anita Beckers, Frankfurt. Baker’s work considers the mystique of luxury products and how their branding and subsequent value is created through the highly fictive practices of advertising and marketing. Her media include magazine spreads, performance, sculpture and video and look to articulate a discourse on systems of display and the value placed on consumer brands through the cult of celebrity, fashion and design.
