I am a deeply intuitive maker. My work develops through a process of dream analysis, meditation, movement and material exploration.
One of the essential conundrums of live work is that modern practice demands it to reach through screens to touch its audience. This changes the energetics of its message, and I actively build with the frame to hold power through the loss of materiality.
"Things that Survived the Winter" and Spring FREEZE:
A hybrid proposition combining journal excerpts, explorations of dreams, and photographic essays, Spring FREEZE brings intuition back into the artistic process. Testament to unraveling the chronic pain that plagued the author over the last decade, it can also be understood as an emancipation journey from the boundaries we too often put on ourselves. Spring FREEZE serves as the underlying structure for the development of an environmental performance / video project called "Things That Survived The Winter" at Crane Arts in Philadelphia.

Sarah Muehlbauer a.k.a Lionorfox is a gypsy nomad art-crusader with a serious affinity for circus. She stages hybrid acrobatic narratives by herself and in collaboration with the world. She got her Masters in Visual Art from Tyler School of Art, studied with Joan Hyman of Yogaworks, and interned with Circa Contemporary Circus, who taught her that to make it happen you’ve got to be “all in”.
