RACHEL ROSE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life | Art -

Just into her 30s, Rachel Rose has ex­pe­ri­enced a me­te­oric rise since win­ning the 2015 Frieze Artist Award and de­but­ing at the Whit­ney Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art the same year with an ac­claimed show. She is known for dream­like video works un­der­scored by un­nerv­ing mes­sages and com­pelling ideas (mor­tal­ity, global warm­ing, his­tory, tech­nol­ogy)—vis­ually po­etic mon­tages that she makes by lay­er­ing film, col­lage and found footage. Lake Val­ley, her video on view at the Cen­tral Pavil­ion, con­tin­ues such an ap­proach. The story fol­lows a furry pet as it leaves its sub­ur­ban fam­ily be­hind to go in search of a new friend in a nearby for­est, and it’s made of com­pos­ite images from 19th­cen­tury chil­dren’s books, which Rose has cut and lay­ered over with cel an­i­ma­tion. The re­sult is an en­chant­ing, multi-sen­sory work ex­plor­ing the bor­ders be­tween self-de­vel­op­ment and adult­hood.
