Sarah Taylor Silverwood uses drawing and language as material to produce publications, animation and installation works. Daphne considers the relationship between women and language, taking the ancient Greek myth of Daphne and Apollo as a focus. This early story, which traces Apollo’s pursuit of Daphne and her transformation into a laurel tree, has been retold over centuries in many different art forms.


 

Through hand-drawn animation, objects and drawing, Taylor Silverwood interprets key motifs within the story and considers how we consume these narratives. In doing so, she highlights the ways in which early stories permeate contemporary popular culture and wider social narratives around women’s experiences. Through the work, Taylor Silverwood also draws attention to the form of animation itself, as a practice that exists between drawing and moving image and a record of the maker’s hand.
