Sarah Meyohas

French-American artist Sarah Meyohas (b.1991, New York, US) centers her practice within emerging technologies. Working in media from cryptocurrency to augmented reality, she enlists the natural world as references, network as a medium, and the specular as a mode of contemplation. Rose petals act as a metaphor for the binary language of digital communication, augmented reality birds flock in accordance with the stock market index, and foliage is visually pulled into a boundless void through the artist’s ongoing two-way mirror photographic series. By merging traditional mythologies and clichéd objects of beauty with contemporary digital mediums, Meyohas enacts a visual language for the systems, algorithms, and technologies that influence our daily lives.

Meyohas exhibits her work internationally, with solo exhibitions in New York at Red Bull Arts and 303 Gallery. Her work has travelled to institutions including the Barbican in London, the Jameel Arts Center in Dubai, the Ming Contemporary Art Museum in Shanghai, and the New Museum in New York.

She has been featured in The New York Times, Time Magazine, Wired, Vice, ArtForum, and The Atlantic and has appeared on CNBC, PBS, and CBC. Her film “Cloud of Petals” has been screened at various film festivals including the Minneapolis St Paul International Film Festival, Slamdance, NY Times Talks, CogX, and the Locarno Film Festival. She has been named in Forbes Magazine’s “30 under 30” list and Cultured Magazine’s “30 under 35” list.

Meyohas holds a B.S. in finance from the Wharton School and a B.A. in international relations from the University of Pennsylvania, and in 2015 received an M.F.A. from Yale University. The artist currently splits her time between New York and London and is working towards a feature-length film and various public commissions.
