This is a platform for thinking out loud: mainly via images and links that capture my imagination. It's not refined but raw and fluid. It's purpose serves to document my Fine Art postgrad projects and musings. You never know, I might loosen up and get into this blog lark...
Taking societal and cultural constructs as departure points, Wilberforce's art investigates lived experience through spaces, memory and perception. Working across media: photography, video, painting and installation, her work explores subjects of place, and self, as arenas for deconstruction.
Rachel Wilberforce spent her formative years in Cape Town, South Africa and currently lives in Norfolk. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including Tate Modern, Freud Museum, Open Eye Gallery, Courtauld Institute of Art, The Stanley Picker Gallery, Focal Point Gallery, Matt Roberts Arts Project Space, BFI Southbank, Leeds Art Gallery, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), Van Abbemuseum and Ron Mandos Gallery. Work is part of Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade, Chaos Gallery and National Museums Liverpool collections.
