Wolfe, Rachel

Photography and video

Rachel Wolfe is an American artist working with the Body and Vision relationship. Her oeuvre involves still and moving images, installations, writing, drawing, painting and mixed-media, curatorial projects, and performance. A background in dance and music play an important role in her thinking and choices. Seeing the body as the primary generative force in cognition, Wolfe’s meditative works nurture a reverence for beauty in service to ways of knowing deeply tied to the connection between the body and nature. Wolfe’s interest in the senses themselves deepened after moving to Norway in 2015, as a way to examine and release from concepts or myths and to take up forms of intelligence society may stand to lose being given ease through machine and technology.
