Rachel Monosov for three months at otte1

Rachel Monosov works in performance, photography, video, and sculpture. By delving into cultural notions of alienation, territorial belonging, and identity, she reflects a rootless present rife with broader social implications. She constructs entire worlds around her subjects, which function pursuant to their own set of laws. Her personal biography is weaved throughout, loading the work with social and political concepts echoing historical events.

Since 2017, Monosov’s work has been included in exhibitions at BOZAR and Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Belgium, Kunsthaus Hamburg and Bundeskunsthalle Bonn in Germany, Art Institute of Chicago, National Museum of Art in Bucharest, National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare, Serlachius Museums in Finland, Palazzo delle Espozitioni in Rome.
