FULL NARRATIVE ARIST BIO //


Sarah Martinus (Melbourne, Australia, 1987) is an artist, healer and independent researcher, working technically with subtle body energies and their complex interconnected relationship within environment.

Her focus into the holistic psychic rhythms of the un-manifested, explores identity, embodiment, psyche, spirit, emotion and the co-emergent multitude of realities within the individual and collective.

Through core-shamanic praxis, grounded within dreamwork, inner embodied alchemy [somatics] and orphic incantation [sound healing and authentic voicework] coupled with research into non-linear consciousness theory, and narrative [poetics, archetype, myth and the absurd] - Sarah’s work opens communication with transpersonal inner imagery, working to mediate the modern machine and collective spiritual identity-body.

Her analytic approach to energy practition, with respect to indigenous sources of wisdom under the term “shamanic”, is focused on the collection and recognition of lost feminine ways of being as building blocks for present knowledge.

High importance is understood within darkness as a vital process to incubation and initiation, intuition-technology, authenticity, chance, synchronicity; influenced by aktionist art theory, neo-concretism, radical transformability, psycho-ecology, and the abject.

Across abstract image, ritual, sound and experience, she addresses the inner-experience as product, holding concurrent metaphysical spaces and paradox in acknowledgement of the non-dual.

She questions deeply into how to become a clean mouthpeice for the unseen, into prophecy and oracles.

Her research into core shamanic perspectives of digitalisation as an integration portal, presented through sound and writing, with the Foundation of Shamanic Studies Europe (2020) and as performance happening with CTM Festival Hacklab Berlin (2018), views the simultaneous evolution of perspectives of the sensorial body and birth of digitalisation as a leverage for expanded multi-perspectivism in witnessing and healing trauma, evolving a new embrace of what she now calls intra-sectionality: psychic fragments as unique blueprint for the win-win-win; the ever expansive abundance grid.

The threads of her degree in Fashion Design (1.Hons, 2008) from R.M.I.T. Melbourne drew her towards an exploratory and collaborative program in transformative sustainability, in connection with S.I.A.L [spatial information architecture laboratory]; where the work and  mentorship of Prof. Pia Ednie Brown, Research Supervisor Prof. Robyn Healy, artists Adele Varcoe, Boo Chapple and designers Material By Product [Susan Dimasci, Chantal Kirby] inspired the reflection upon radical theories of toxicity and the networked connection of the human body with layers of environment, developing seeds into her deep interest in working with objective psyche.

In 2015 she turned inwards and began studies with the Foundation of Shamanic Studies Europe, stepping away from the academic sector and away from exhibiting work within traditional art framework, preferring private connections, alternative formats and intimate ceremony.

Sarah holds a metaphysical relational vessel called Consumer Refund, held online and through sound, where individuals may integrate their subconscious matter (dreams) into her archive via private experience, where the internet allows the fostering of a personal, yet anonymous connection.

Sarah's work with performance, video, sound and image has been exhibited internationally in institutions such as Screenspace (Melbourne, Australia) curated by Laura Castagnini, festivals such as At.tention festival (Lärz, Germany), Atrium Space (Melbourne, Australia) and fortyfivedownstairs (Melbourne) together with live art collaboration Spill Collective. She has performed live electronic sound in club settings, namely OHM (Berlin), and has brought multimedia performance art and video into spaces such as about:blank (Berlin) curated by Sylvia Sadzinski, embracing accessibility of live art as mutual exchange with Berlin’s underground club music scene.

In 2016, Sarah founded and curated an independent art and music space: Aether (Berlin), focusing on post-internet, conceptual art and ambient sound and noise, running for one year.

She continues to study into her personal cosmology, defending independent, receptive, curiously interrogative, respectful and subversive creation.

Her praxis work is focused on supporting embodiment of Soul and aids to hold space for individuals through periods of transition and support the healing of emotional trauma.
