You are of vital importance

Sarah Tripp (2014)


A collection of short stories and vignettes concerned with the dynamics of social interaction and the construction of character. These stories employ a variety of tones and forms to examine proximity and distance between characters, communities and objects.

Tripp is preoccupied with the critique of narrative, the structuring of unstructured activity and the translation of bodily experience. She works with the forms of anecdote, film, performance and printed words; rooting her practice in observation and experience. Her works are marked by the use of multiple perspective, episodic structure and suspended denouement.
