Sarah Entwistle received her BSc from The Bartlett School of Architecture, London and her Dip. from the Architectural Association, London, where she subsequently taught a design unit.

In 2011, she inherited the personal effects of her late grandfather and fellow architect, Clive Entwistle (1916 – 1976), whom she never met — this material re-emerged from a Manhattan storage room where it had been retained for over thirty years. Entwistle’s subsequent solo show In short, in theory and with a bit of luck (2012) at the Architectural Association marked the beginning of her engagement with Clive’s archive. Working from within a biographical frame that orientates around the processing and ‘spoliation’ of this archive, Entwistle’s process of re-working both material and thematic remnants from within the archive offers opportunities to address wider gendered dynamics at an intimate scale. The contents of the archive reveals a charged relationship between Clive’s female lovers, relatives and his professional practice as a proponent of architectural modernism. The impulse with this on-going processing of the material is compelled by the gradual re-centering and re-claiming of the female Muse.
