Lafayette Anticipations Foundation in Paris and The Fridericianum in Kassel are pleased to announce the catalogue for Rachel Rose’s exhibition, presented from October 26, 2019 to January 12, 2020 in Germany and from March 13 to September 13, 2020 in France. The book includes contributions from Wai Chee Dimock, Quinn Latimer, Timothy Morton, and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

The exhibition brings together five video installations and a group of sculptures, through which Rachel Rose approaches our relationship to the living, to landscape, to fiction, to childhood, and to spirituality. In each of these subjects she sees an opportunity to investigate our way of being in the world.

The catalogue provides a full view of the artist's approach, exploring how humanity has described, studied, and transformed its condition over the past centuries while dissecting our contemporary relationship to technology, nature, and the finitude of existence.

The book opens with a conversation between Rachel Rose and Hans Ulrich Obrist, the artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, which touches on many aspects of the context in which the works were created. Three texts then address several essential facets of the artist’s work. The Yale literature professor Wai Chee Dimock provides a very precise analysis of the relationship to time and temporality in Rachel Rose’s videos. The poet and art critic Quinn Latimer then discusses the links in the artist’s work between the elements of narrative, the writings of the Brothers Grimm, and the vastness of the universe. Finally, the philosopher Timothy Morton, known for his work on ecology, explores several fundamental themes relating to the works on display, such as feminism, poststructuralism, and quantum physics.

The catalogue also includes descriptions and photographs of each work presented (Wil-O-Wisp, Lake Valley, Everything and More, Sitting Feeding Sleeping, Autoscopic Egg, Borns) as well as installation views of the two exhibitions.
