Past work includes placing a live horse in a classroom, as a response to teachers talking about their ideas on teaching/learning, and creating a spitting performance with students at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Sarah Cole studied English Literature and Fine Art at Exeter and Plymouth Universities followed by an MA in Media Fine Art at the Slade, University College London.
She has exhibited in Denmark, Finland and Australia as well as across the UK, and been commissioned by many arts organisations including Artangel, The South London Gallery, Creative Partnerships and the National Theatre.
