Rachel Deane at Automat
Rachel Deane’s (MFA 2019) installation Mending will be on display at the artist collective AUTOMAT in Philadelphia where she has transformed the space using her signature labor-intensive, layered approach to storytelling. In Mending, Deane takes a look at contemporary dating culture, both positive and traumatic. Rooted in literary references including Hamlet’s Ophelia and Faust’s Aricia, this idea was originally manifest as a short story written by Deane, and then evolved to material form, and now contains dozens of objects, drawings, structures, and spaces.
Mending will be on display from August 10 to September 22, 2018.
