In recent years, Rachel Rose has quickly risen to prominence for her compelling video installations and films. In her work, the artist often explores how our relationship to landscape, storytelling and belief systems around mortality are inseparably linked to one other. Through multiple subject matter — whether investigating the use of cryonics to extend life after death, narratives of abandonment in children’s literature, or the sensory experience of zero gravity in outer space — she questions what it is that makes us human and how we seek to alter and escape that designation.
For her first large scale solo exhibition in Germany, the artist, born 1986 in New York, will present a selection of her video installations and a new series of sculptures at the Fridericianum.
