Rachel Ara in Transgender, Gender & Psycho-analysis
Bureau Doove is happy to now also represent the exciting artist Rachel Ara who currently lives and works in London. In her work, Ara is specifically interested in the conspiracy of silence, hidden agendas and their repercussions, particularly the inequalities faced against women in our culture.
Ara won the 2016 Aesthetica Art Prize with her work This Much I’m Worth (pictured), “a self-evaluating artwork that continually displays its own sale value”. She was also shortlisted for The Lumen Prize 2016 Still Image with her work D.O.A.M IV (The Death of Ana Mendieta), a CAD rendering of the death scene of the artist Ana Mendieta.
Ara uses a range of materials according to each project, ranging from film, sculpture, paint and drawing to electronics, programming and CAD.
