about this work

Known for her work in assemblage and sculpture, Rachel Harrison has created a print for Texte zur Kunst that composites various media from her recent activities and associations into the two dimensions of an inkjet print, each further marked by the artist with spraypaint. The work is based on a digital collage that appears in her publication G-L-O-R-I-A, produced on the occasion of her 2015 show at the Cleveland Museum of Art, which presented a selection of her works alongside those by Robert Rauschenberg.

about Rachel Harrison

Rachel Harrison is an American visual artist who is primarily known for her assemblage work and sculpture, sometimes layering abstract forms with industrially manufactured elements. She combines a wide range of mediums including photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation and architectural interventions, thus creating kaleidoscopic fields of visual sensation and cultural references.

Grotesque and funny, Harrison’s humor derives from its carefully structured, yet open-ended suggestion, each element building up to a plausible punch line. Using visual language as a subversive tool, Harrison parodies expected comparison to artists such as Franz West and Paul McCarthy, appropriating styles and motifs with subtle knowingness, wielding artistic process as a mode of investigation.

Rachel Harrison had solo exhibitions including shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Regen Projects, Los Angeles and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco. Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions such as in the Serralves Museum, Porto; V.A.C. Foundation, Moscow; Ludwig Forum Aachen, Aachen; Foundation Louis Vuitton, Paris; Tate Modern, London; Picasso Museum, Barcelona; Palais de Tokyo, Paris and Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Bolzano, Bolzano, Italy.
