Publication Date Oct 2007
Description In her sculptures, which often incorporate photographic elements and objects, Rachel Harrison thematizes the complexity of art in a humorous manner, playing with the observer's appetite for decoding meanings. If she makes connections with the current discourses on sculpture and installation, her works remain difficult to characterize. Harrison's unfailingly virtuoso sculptures are often constructed in colourfully painted organic-amorphous forms, serving as mounts for readymades - whether lifestyle magazines, Calvin Klein underwear packaging, or found photographs - appearing both finished and unfinished, thus extremely fragile and ephemeral. The unexpected mix of materials links kitsch and formalism with a cynical wink of the eye. This title was published with the Migros Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Zurich and Kunsthalle Nurnberg
