In addition to working for independent arts organisations, Sarah Rowbottam is an emerging curator/ artist with a particular interest in instigating collaborative and collective projects. Sarah approaches art as an opportunity to initiate moments of exchange, spontaneity and conversation between people. Working across a variety of media including performance, video, projection, sound, photography and interactive work, her contemplative and often intimate artworks provoke an exploration into our individual and collective identities.

For the past four years she has exhibited in a number of group shows and accompanying publications including; 20÷10/2, Coastal Shelf (2009); Live@Woodside (2009); City of South Perth Art Awards, Heritage House (2009 & 08); First Page, Breadbox Gallery (2008); Iris Awards, Perth Centre for Photography (2007); The Love is My Velocity Cookbook I, Breadbox Gallery (2007); and, Fuji Film Site Unseen (2007), which toured Australia wide.

Sarah graduated in the top 1% of Curtin University of Technology in 2006 with a Double Bachelor in Art and Communication and Cultural Studies. She is a recent recipient of the JUMP National Mentoring Program with the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art's Curator Leigh Robb as her mentor, and occupies the unique position of artist and curator for Rounds, as well as producer of the Rounds book.
